Kim-Kardashian
Us (January 7, 2013) leads its new issue with this story about how Kim Kardashian is threatening to leave Instagram over their new policy that they can sell users' images.

Apparently, Instagram is backing down over user outrage. But what I found interesting was that Us itself published a bunch of her photos from Instagram and credited them to "Kim Kardashian." I doubt they asked permission. Magazines using images from social media usually credit the platform and leave it at that. Either way, no public figure would get anywhere suing over the printing of images he or she posted publicly.

Just an interesting copyright issue to me.
