The new terms of services really remove the editorial aspect of the application. As a photographer, I don’t compensate the subjects of my photographs because I know I’m not going to sell the images for advertising purposes. With the new rules, the language seems to imply that if you take a picture of someone, it can be used.

What would be nice, is a platform created to enable people to be creative without bowing to the financial pressures behind it. The latest changes reflect poorly on the individuals behind Instagram: they had a billion dollars waved in front of them and they couldn’t resist.

I would be more inclined to buy an app that protected my rights, than a free application that compromises what we do. I think it’s up to us, as photographers, to find another avenue to publish while protecting our craft.
