Photographer Making Lots of Cash Off of Others Public Instagram Photos - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 6/12/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

I’m glad I don’t have any bikini shots of myself on Instagram like a lot of girls my age. Actually, I’m glad I don’t have any bikini photos of myself anywhere online or offline. The Washington Post reports that a painter/photographer is sharing pictures from Instagram accounts that are public and selling some of them for $90,000. He alters the photos some, and so that’s how he is legally allowed to sale them without having to worry about copyright. You may freak out that your photos could be sold, but you’re the one that publically posted those club photos from Saturday night on Instagram. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
