Does the Internet own us now? A look at what Instagram's policy kerfuffle means for artists

Bay Area artist Zio Ziegler shares his murals (like this one) on Instagram -- is he concerned that the site owns his images?

"I'll keep using the site," says Ziegler. "But I'm for sure going to upload more selfies, and pick all the wrong filters. Try monetizing that." It's pretty good advice — reserve your truly killer shots for paying customers (or Flickr's new app — that site has always allowed users to choose their own rules on how photos can be shared.) The Internet age has made it necessary for us to balance our desire for more followers and fans with our desire to maintain control over the content to which we're attracting them.

So, all Kelvin everything! Instagram humor. I guess I'm not breaking up with the site yet either.
