The Verge: Photographer can’t sue a website for embedding her Instagram post, says court. “A court ruled yesterday that Mashable can embed a professional photographer’s photo without breaking copyright law, thanks to Instagram’s terms of service. The New York district court determined that Stephanie Sinclair offered a ‘valid sublicense’ to use the photograph when she posted it publicly on Instagram.”
