    Pure corporate greed.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    At least back in the day, when the local mini lab owner looked at your pictures, it was only slightly creepy - this is just out and out greedy

    I teach social research methods and we talk about the difficulty for researchers now that people are disconnecting landlines. How to get a balanced phone survey when large sections (it used to be just the 'young' and 'poor')have no land line?

    I have a friend who used to be a printer at a large pro photo outfit and he'd always bring home prints of weirdos, glamour shoots, etc. He had a wall full of them.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    They didn't back down, they were just mis-interpreted.

    No plans, they say, but the language of the T&Cs clearly allows for that. It's more likely a PR-forced u-turn, that might even get their lawyers to write slightly less horrible terms for their users.

    Sadly, we live in an era that forces us to accept unfair terms, small print, 96-page agreements, etc. Fortunately, peer pressure, like in this case, might help change them at times. Anyway, I do not use IG and I am not on FB, though I Tweet and blog...

    It's just written that way to cover them for when people share an image and they have no control over where it will appear. Same as Facebook.

    I'm sure they have no intention to sell images despite what paranoid minds think!
