Many users are finding their photos on other sites – and critics say Instagram is not doing enough to prevent image theft After a backlash from users, Instagram clarified its terms of service to ensure they would have absolute ownership of their own images. But photographers on the site are finding that terms of service and community guidelines don’t stop businesses, publishers and other users from helping themselves. Swedish photographer Tuana Aziz was surprised to find a photo he’d posted to Instagram in 2011 screen-printed to a T-shirt and sold in a Mango clothing store. He later checked the retailer’s website and found that it was available for £8.99. The company has apparently removed the shirt after Aziz complained, but he captured and shared a screengrab with his Instagram followers.
