FYI, artists on Instagram: They're allowing (and encouraging) anyone to use your images and footage for their own Reels and Stories without your permission. And it's automatic. You have to opt out of it if you don't want to give permission.

So, they're pretty much saying "Use anything you find here without asking and don't give any credit--that's okay!"


@coreyartus Just another drop of bulshittery in the cesspool that is IG right now... I tried to start posting on there regularly again after a few months and my photos each reached like 10 people (have around 500 followers there). Made me quit this shit for good. Give up all copyright for your art just so people that like your stuff can't even see it because the algorithm requires you to do fortnite dances right now? Yeah, no thanks.
