Instagram announcing Monday a change in its Terms of Service, allowing it to sell users’ photos for advertising without paying the photo’s original poster.  The backlash peaking Tuesday, once exactly what all that legal mumbo-jumbo means was figured out.

(Bell) “It’s so hard for any kind of user to actually make sense, that often times we’re just clicking ‘OK’ and moving on.”

…CNET Senior Editor Donald Bell.  Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom says it’s changing the changed language to make it clear: YOU own your Instagram photos and they won’t be using them for advertising.  That said, Systrom says Instagram is a business and they are exploring new ways to make their owner, Facebook, some money.
