"Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed,” he wrote. “We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period."
"I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights," Systrom continued.
