Instagram and Lawyers

"Legal documents are easy to misinterpret." Kevin Systrom/Instagram

Really? I could have sworn legal departments were meant to be impossible to misinterpret. 

"One of the main reasons these documents don’t take effect immediately, but instead 30 days from now, is that we wanted to make sure you had an opportunity to raise any concerns."

Has this guy met a lawyer?


"But it would be a serious strategic error to assume that Instagram is primarily about filters. Instagram is a massively successful photo-sharing social network that offers filters as a nice touch. Twitter implementing filters will probably hurt Instagram as much as Windows hurt OS X by introducing translucent window chrome in Vista."

He's right. It's lame. I feel a sense of whimsy every time I launch Instagram. I never feel that with Twitter.
