A judge in San Francisco has dismissed a class action lawsuit filed against Instagram over an update to its terms of service. Prompted by consumers’ fears that the company would sell their photos without compensation, California resident Lucy Rodriguez and the law firm Finkelstein & Krinsk filed suit against the photo-sharing service just before the new terms, which included an arbitration clause preventing users from participating in class action lawsuits except under limited circumstances, could go into effect.
