So basically they appropriate the right to steal your creative work (for their own profit at that).

Have the RIAA and MPAA weighed in yet on this gross copyright infringement? Is this even legal under the DMCA?

Will the Zuckerdork be arrested out of his bed in a pre-dawn no-knock SWAT raid?

Questions, questions...

This is from the Instagram site just now:

“Ownership Rights Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed. We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period.”

Have they given up the ownership thing? Also, does anyone use the Amazon Cloud? Don’t they have something similar?

They aren’t stealing it, people gave it to them. It’s the same terms of use most free upload/ share sites have. You put stuff on their hard drive and now they own it. If you want someplace to share your photos that won’t claim ownership pay them, if you don’t pay them you’re not a customer, you’re a content provider.
