Instagram has made it clear that people will need permission to use embedded photos of other Instagram users on third-party websites or platforms as per Technology News.

It means that if an Instagram user wants to embed someone’s Instagram post on other website, he or she need to ask the person for a copyright license, else he or she can be subject to a copyright lawsuit.


According to a report in Ars Technica, the Facebook-owned platform will not provide users a copyright license to display embedded images on other websites.

To date, users believed that embedding images, rather than hosting them directly, provides insulation against copyright claims.

“While our terms allow us to grant a sub-license, we do not grant one for our embeds API,” a Facebook company spokesperson was quoted as saying in the report.

The news came after a New York judge ruled that Newsweek cannot dismiss a photographer’s complaint based on Instagram’s terms of service.

Instagram told Ars Technica it was “exploring” more ways for users to control embedding.

For now, photographers can only stop embeds by making photographs private, which strictly limits their reach on Instagram. (IANS)

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights.
