Facebook´s Instagram claims
´perpetual´rights to users´ photos

Telegraph [UK], by Matt Warman

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/18/2012 10:12:53 AM

Newly announced changes to Instagram´s terms and conditions give the Facebook-owned photo-sharing site ´perpetual´ rights to all images uploaded, and allow Instagram to use them for commercial purposes without identification. "You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such," the new terms say. That may let advertisers use teenagers’ photos for marketing, raising privacy and security concerns, Jeffrey Chester, executive director for the Center for Digital Democracy, told Bloomberg. Facebook itself was sued by users angry that their images had been used as part of ´sponsored stories´, and settled the case

I deleted my Facebook after the election (easier than defriending the few remaining dems...) but still enjoy Instagram. Oh well! Guess I´ll delete it too. There goes another fun little distraction. I hope the whole service goes under.

I ALMOST deleted my account. But I´ve changed how I use Facebook. I´m a supporter of Ryan Ferguson, who has been incarcerated in Missouri for 9 years, and absolutely deserves a new trial (but I don´t believe for a second that he murdered the man he was convicted of murdering...I believe he deserves flat out freedom.)

Recently a FB employee named Mike helped Ryan´s family put together a "Free Ryan Ferguson" cause page that is now up to over 8500 "likes". In just 2 weeks. While this may sound trivial, it´s such a source of hope and support to Ryan and his parents, who have fought for years to get him out.

Ironically, support for a complete stranger has made me see the personal side of Facebook. No politics, no trivial posts, no fights...just thousands of people from around the world giving hope to a family fighting injustice.

So I´m over the trivia...I just go to the pages I support, visit my kids´ updates...check to see what´s up...and then off again.

Facebook is wonderful for connecting with friends and family. It is also great and for sharing imagery with like minded artisans, if you work in creative fields, as I do. It´s an important vehicle for marketing.

But I have always avoided Instagram and Pinterest for this very reason: my images are MINE.

Delete all you want. Facebook who owns Instagram says they still own the images.
The "founder" who lied to the real founders also committed stock fraud and made billions.

He does not care about what his customers thinks. He will lie and lie.

So if someone posts the next viral cat photo, Instagram will claim the royalties. If they post child porn instead, Instagram would have some excuse for why they´re not culpable. This is wrong. They cannot have it both ways. They cannot make money off of some photos while denying responsibility for others.

#5 - You can´t delete your account. The most you can do is "close" it. It actually remains there, though not accessible to anyone else, and you can still access/reopen it (whether you want to or not) with the user ID & password.

I´m a regular FB user, for human rights/Tibet causes and to connect with friends near and far. It certainly has its down sides but has been more of a blessing to me than anything else.

I removed all personal information and pictures a couple of years ago when I learned FB does things like this. Thankfully I didn´t have any of my children´s pictures to post.

After that I learned FB scan for political posts and turn them over to Politico, a separate news organization, who then turns them over to the DNC.

When will we get an internet site like this that is not owned by the Liberals Marxist traitors?

Obama´s Latest Dilemma: How to

Rejection of Peace Plan
Breitbart London [UK], by Thomas Rose    Original Article

If Friday’s Israeli media reports about last week’s Washington visit by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas prove true, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry could well face their most difficult foreign policy challenge to date--namely, figuring out how to blame Israel for Abbas’ rejection of the three key points that compromise Secretary Kerry’s proposed framework agreement. Israel’s Channel 2 TV reported that Abbas used the occasion of last Monday’s White House meeting with Obama to flatly reject any possibility of accepting Kerry’s framework proposal which was crafted specifically to permit peace talks to continue after the expiration of Abbas´s

Iran is in the process of building a mock-up of an American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier with the possible goal of blowing it up for publicity purposes. Construction on the crude model appears to be in full swing at a shipyard near Bandar Abbas, as shown in newly released commercial satellite images. ´They got this barge and threw some wood on top of it to make it look like the USS Nimitz. That´s all we know for sure,´ a U.S. defense official told AFP. Officials in the Obama administration believe that the faux carrier might be used for propaganda value, but they are not

Venice votes to split from Italy as
89% of the city´s residents opt to
form a new independent state
Daily Mail [UK], by Hannah Roberts    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/22/2014 4:40:31 PM     Post Reply
Venetians have voted overwhelmingly for their own sovereign state in a ‘referendum’ on independence from Italy. Inspired by Scotland’s separatist ambitions, 89 percent of the residents of the lagoon city and its surrounding area, opted to break away from Italy in an unofficial ballot. The proposed ‘Repubblica Veneta’ would include the five million inhabitants of the Veneto region and could later expand to include parts of Lombardy, Trentino and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. The floating city has only been part of Italy for 150 years. The 1000 year–old democratic Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia, was quashed by Napoleon and was subsumed into Italy

Normally when a country’s people give a referendum vote that the EU doesn’t like, they are just told to vote again to put it right. In the case of Crimea, however, where 96 percent of the people voted to return to Russia, the EU was in no position to ask them to think again. Even if they did, considering that Crimea, where the tsars, Tolstoy and Chekhov used to spend their summers, has been part of Russia for most of the past 230 years, that 60 percent of its people are ethnic Russians and that 82 percent speak Russian at

Russian soldiers have stormed through the walls of an airforce base in Crimea after a Ukrainian commander ignored demands to leave ordered his troops to ´stand their ground´. At least one Ukrainian soldier is reported to have been shot and explosions have been heard at the Belbek base near Sevastapol after a tank broke through the gates. [Snip] An ambulance was seen driving to the gates of the base, but was not admitted inside, so two paramedics were pictured running inside. After the base was taken over, the Ukrainian men gathered, sang the national anthem, then stood at ease.

Freedom of information, expression and belief should be considered "universal rights", Michelle Obama, the US first lady, told students in China on Saturday. Speaking at Peking University on the second full day of a weeklong, bridge-building family tour of the country, Mrs Obama said: "It is so important for information and ideas to flow freely over the internet and through the media. When it comes to expressing yourself freely, and worshipping as you choose, and having open access to information--we believe those are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet," Mrs Obama told an audience

A large piece of floating debris has been spotted in the remote Indian Ocean search zone for missing flight MH370, it was revealed today. Chinese satellites picked up signs of an unknown object measuring 72ft wide by 42ft wide in an area 75 miles west of where Australia reported an earlier sighting of floating debris. The images were taken at lunchtime on March 18, Chinese state media reported, just two days after the sighting by Australian satellites singled out the area in the southern Indian Ocean.

Love dark chocolate? Now you can eat it with much less guilt because scientists have discovered why it is so good for us. Previous studies have found daily consumption of dark chocolate reduces blood pressure and is good for the heart. Now scientists have discovered why this happens--and its down to how our guts ferment the fibre in cocoa beans.

Vladimir Putin yesterday mocked the West´s sanctions against Russia - as eastern Europe began boosting its defences amid fears of further Kremlin land grabs. Putin dismissively brushed aside concerns raised by Washington, Brussels and London and inked Crimea´s switch to rule by Moscow in defiance of international objections. He also laughed off punishments imposed by the U.S. and EU on his closest friends and their banks. Putin opened an account in blacklisted St Petersburg-based Rossiya Bank, which was singled out for sanctions by America, and ordered that his monthly £4,500 salary be paid into the bank. ´I have ordered the administrative department to transfer

The campaign for greater press regulation in Britain has suffered a devastating, possibly fatal blow with the release to the Guardian of a list of the celebrities who are lending their support to the Leveson Royal Charter proposal. "Wankers. Faarsands of them!" commented one former fan of press regulation on seeing the list: "I used to think the British press had got too intrusive and badly needed reining in. But now that I´ve been made aware of the kind of ocean-going knobs who are in favour of the Leveson Royal Charter, I´ve adjusted my position. In fact I´d like to

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines
