Instagram alters wording on terms of service

instagramStand down, everybody. Instagram announced in a blog post that it will revert the language in its terms of service to the original wording:

“The concerns we heard about from you the most focused on advertising, and what our changes might mean for you and your photos. There was confusion and real concern about what our possible advertising products could look like and how they would work.

Because of the feedback we have heard from you, we are reverting this advertising section to the original version that has been in effect since we launched the service in October 2010. You can see the updated terms here…I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos – you do.”

“Original version” refers to the terms that have been in place since the service launched in October, 2010.

You may now resume posting photos of your dinner without fear.
