Embedding Instagram photos may cause trouble, company changed rules

Instagram has changed the rules.

If an Instagram user wants to embed another Instagram post on another website, they have to ask that person for a copyright license …

If you also copy someone’s photos from Instagram without permission, now you can get into trouble, because the company has implemented a new rule for this. Photo sharing social media platform Instagram has made it clear that people will need permission to use embedded photos of other Instagram users on third party website or platforms.

That is, if an Instagram user wants to embed another Instagram post on another website, then they have to ask that person for copyright license. If he uploads the embedded photo to another site without permission, then it may be subject to copyright litigation. According to a report by Ars Technica, the Facebook-owned platform will not grant users a copyright license to display embedded photos on other websites.

Copyright case can be made
Until now, users believe that embedding images rather than hosting them directly provides insulation against copyright claims. A Facebook company spokesperson quoted the report as saying that while our terms allow us to grant sub-licenses, we do not grant grants for our embeds API.(Also read- Great gift to Jio customers!

He further said, the rights applicable in our platform policies require a third party to get the necessary rights from the holders. In this, if a license is required by law, then they have to ensure the license to share this content.

This news has come at a time when a judge in New York said in his decision that Newsweek cannot dismiss a photographer’s complaint based on Instagram’s terms of service. However, Instagram told Ars Technica that it is exploring more ways for users to control embedding. For now, photographers can strictly limit their access to Instagram and can only prevent embedding by making the photo private.
