    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.

    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"
