Instagram users launch lawsuit against change in service terms
Sydney: Instagram users in the US have filed a lawsuit in a bid to stop the firm from changing its terms of service, saying the photo-sharing service is breaching its contract with users.

The lawsuit filed Friday by Southern California-based law firm of Finkelstein and Krinsk claimed class action status and called on authorities to bar Instagram from changing its rules.

The lawsuit claimed that Instagram is taking its customers property rights while insulating itself from all liability.

According to News.com.au, the law firm said in the suit, also demanded that the service pay its legal fees.

Changes to the Instagram privacy policy and terms of service had included wording that allowed for people's pictures to be used by advertisers at Instagram or Facebook worldwide, royalty-free.

Instagram, which has been acquired by Facebook, recently tried to calm a user rebellion by apparently backing off the changes, due to come into effect from January.

But the class action lawsuit, filed in a district court in San Francisco, alleges that customers canceling with Instagram will still forfeit their rights to any photos that they had previously shared on the service, the report said.
