Instagram wants the court to toss a suit over its ToS change
justify the deal by monetizing Instagram.
In Wednesday's filing with the court, Instagram said that the plaintiff, Lucy Funes, had no right to bring the claim against it because she could have simply deleted her Instagram account before the new ToS took effect. Funes had sued Instagram on December 21st, nearly a month before the new terms started on January 19th. She also continued to keep her account after that day.
Instagram also disputed Funes' claim that it would transfer ownership of subscriber's pictures to the company. The filing says that both the old and new service agreements give the ownership of the pictures on the site to the subscriber who took them. An attorney for the plaintiff was not available for comment and Facebook refused to comment.
