Instagram faces class-action suit following ToS change
While Instagram founder and CEO Kevin Systrom apologized, Instagram again revised the ToS which removed the offending language. However, the revision to the revised ToS now adds a mandatory arbitration clause, removing the rights of users to file a class action suit against the photo-sharing site. And while those members who do not agree with the latest ToS are allowed to simply walk away from the site, the suit notes that they lose the ability to take back pictures stored on Instagram. The latest ToS on the site does seem to give Instagram the ability to sell member's pictures regardless of denials by Systrom that the site will do so.
