There's so much back-and-forth in this controversial case.

The people have spoken! And the celebs aren't far behind!
Instagram's terribly tyrannical new Terms of Service are pissing off a plethora of actors, models, and all-around famous faces!
Really sad to have to end my luv 4 @instagram. Will be deleting my account due 2 their ridiculous new terms.

Can't believe Instagrams new policy! They r allowed 2 use ALL of ur images in advertising. Will be erasing my account shortly. Pheed it is!!

Actors Tyson Beckford and Kate Walsh are in the same boat, too! Not literally, LOLz, we aren't sure if they've ever met!
No more Instagram

Can you blame them?
Consider a scenario in which Instagram sells a photo of Rihanna rolling a blunt.
Swisher Sweets buys the rights for millions, plasters her face on billboard ads all around the world and Ri never sees a dime!
Thankfully, disgruntled users have other options.
Wired crafted a step-by-step guide to downloading your Instagram photos and re-uploading them to other photo-sharing Apps with less nefarious intentions.
We wonder if Instagram might soon revisit these "new and improved" Terms of Service!
