Instagram Wins Appeal over Embedded Images in Copyright Lawsuit

  • A 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled in favor of Instagram in a copyright infringement case involving embedded photos.
  • The lawsuit, initiated by photographers Matthew Brauer and Alexis Hunley in 2021, claimed Instagram allowed third parties to infringe on copyright by embedding photos without explicit consent.
  • The court argued no copy is made when content is embedded, but acknowledged the photographers raised valid concerns about copyright holders’ control over their work.
