A clearly incredulous Daily Mail has reported:
"A popular photo-sharing website owned by Facebook has told users it now owns the rights to their pictures... Instagram will not give any warning or payment before cashing in on the images posted on its site. It means pictures by children as young as 13 could be sold to advertisers."
Fans of the Daily Mail may need a minute or two to compose themselves at this point. Because the Daily Mail has regularly been accused of setting a high benchmark for scraping photos off social networks and using them without permission.
The Mail goes on to point out one of the more outrageous details:
"Instagram says users must be at least 13 years old to sign up for the service. But the new rules assume that when an underage teenager signs up, a parent or guardian is aware that their child's image, username and photos might be used in adverts."
Earlier this year the Leveson Inquiry heard how the Press Complaints Commission had apparently forced the Daily Mail to remove photos of an 11-year-old boy it had posthumously scraped from Facebook against the wishes of his parents.
