Instagram to Require Users to Get Permission Before Embedding Posts on Their Website



Sharing content has become easier, however, there are copyright laws that you need to be careful of. If you share things on the public platform they can be reposted or copied, but a lot of people claim that if you create something you should control how it is used and by whom.

For people who usually use Instagram posts for their sites, things are about to get complicated because Instagram has said that it does not allow a sub-license to embedded posts.

“While our terms allow us to grant a sub-license, we do not grant one for our embeds API. Our platform policies require third parties to have the necessary rights from applicable rights holders. This includes ensuring they have a license to share this content if a license is required by law,” said Instagram in an email.

In easy words, this means that if you want to embed something from Instagram to your site, you will have to get permission from the user who posted it or you might get caught up in a copyright lawsuit.

Earlier, Newsweek was sued for using a photo by photographer Elliot McGuken in a post. The magazine claimed that it was acceptable by Instagram to do so, but this was later debunked by the platform in the above statement.
