As of January 16, 2013, all new pictures uploaded to Instagram may be sold to others and they have no obligation to compensate you for it, or even notice to you. That means for example that your photos, whether a landscape, a monument or yourself, may appear in any advertisement or as a part of the cover of a magazine.
