My issue is that they can take my image and username and use it to endorse a product that I may or may not like. In my book, using my name and likeness to sell a product without my consent is wrong, immoral and unethical. It saddens me that they would have the language.
Fortunately they seem to be listening to their users. In a new post today on the Instagram Blog they said that they would be removing language where they could use the photos. I look forward to seeing if they change the language about using my name and likeness as well. I don't mind ads, something has to pay for the service. Nothing is free after all.
And I'll be keeping my eye out...
