Instagram’s mishap last week is finally taking its toll on the Facebook-owned online photo-sharing and social networking service. That’s because the service isn’t just facing the scorching hot backlashes. It now facing a class action lawsuit, which has been filed by the San Diego-based law firm Finkelstein & Krinsk. Instagram user Lucy Funes, on behalf of all others against Instagram, claimed breach of contract and other claims against the insanely popular service.
The filing claims that Instagram isn’t just making a grab for customer property rights, but is also attempting to cover its tail by prohibiting users from seeking legal injunction against the service. Meanwhile, Kurt Opsahl, a Senior Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, says that he is pleased with the company’s decision to revert its Terms Of Service while explaining better its plans for the future. “Hopefully, Instagram will learn from that experience and refrain from removing privacy settings,” Opsahl said. As noted by Reuters, this will be the first civil lawsuit to result from changes of service terms.
