Instagram Hit With Proposed Class-Action Lawsuit

Instagram’s attempt to change its terms of service has inspired not only a user backlash but also– now — a class-action lawsuit. The proposed terms of service were introduced last week, though Instagram has sincebackpedaled. The lawsuit — filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco on Friday and firstreported by Reuters — argues that the proposed changes would “transfer valuable property rights to Instagram while simultaneously relieving Instagram from any liability for commercially exploiting customers’ photographs and artistic content, while shielding Instagram from legal liability.”
