    Interesting case. One may wonder here:

    It seems, that the terms of use ( of Instagram ) don’t incorporate, the distinction between private user or use, and commercial one. I mean, it is likely, that Mashable maintains a site, for commercial use, or for making profits. Now, in such case, one may argue, that Plaintiff, had to be noticed that the use of the photos, would be overwhelming one, means: be used by private individuals, and also, by business entities ( for making money, directly, or, indirectly). If such stipulation doesn’t exist indeed in the use of terms, one may argue, that, at first place, the photographer, would not have agreed to it.

    So, due to lack of good faith and transparency, her claim could maybe be accepted.
