Actors, Musicians, Energy Secretary Fall for Instagram Copyright Hoax

Famous actors and musicians, the head of the U.S. Department of Energy, and regular Instagram users have been spreading a hoax memo that claims the company will soon have permission to make deleted photos and messages public and use those posts against them in court. The claims are fake and the assertions don’t make a lot of sense, but that hasn’t stopped it from being spread by some major names concerned about the implications.
