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. 

#lame, right?

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