So basically in theory they would become bigger than Getty... But every photographer I know is pulling out of IG if they don't update their TOS... They don't actually pay any of the image makers they just plan to sell the images as stock with no profit to the photographer... Shady... Good thing they didn't buy Kodak or they would probably claim rights to any images SHOT on Kodak products... Lol

hey stone

FB has claimed rights to everything posted to FB since it started ..
text images, your likeness+profile picture .. you name it, why would instagram be any different ?

the purchase it just allows people in the buying consortium to use res-down and ohter kokak technology
without worry of being sued, or having to do a work around to make it look like
it isn't the same thing when it is, and having lawyers get rich arguing about it.
