    Enraged over Instagram's drastic policy change? You're not alone.

    The popular photo-sharing site announced a new intellectual-property policy Monday, which takes effect on Jan. 16, granting the now Facebook-owned company the perpetual right to sell users' photographs without compensation or notification.

    Translation? That gorgeous sunset photo you took last Tuesday could end up in a nice California ad campaign, and you won't be notified or paid for the use of your shot. 

    Rihanna loves to post nearly naked Instagram photos

    Well, celebs certainly seem to think so, and a slew of dissatisfied stars have taken to Twitter to share their anger.

    Khloé Kardashian Odom: "Wow…I just read over Instagram's new policy...so sad, looks like I might be deleting my instagram after Jan 16. I hope something changes" 

    Jordin Sparks: "YIKES! Bye instagram."
