My wife was a bit upset with me after she heard this story. Sure enough, our cats are on there and I am the one who posts them - and many things - on Instagram. I was upset, too - but not so much about the privacy issue as about possible copyright violation. In the beginning, I was reluctant to use Instagram as I am a professional photographer and did not want to lose my copyright or have it violated. I am not so well off as to be able to afford to hire a lawyer to study these things but another, world-famous photographer friend of mine who is very careful about his copyright had his lawyer look at Instagram before he began to use it big time and his lawyer assured him the copyright of the individual photographer is protected.
Now I discover Mr. Mundy has either apparently have violated my copyright or there was a big misunderstanding in the first place and my friend's lawyer was wrong. I must get some better information.
Thank you for the story.
