Definitely time to put pressure on Facebook to stop stripping metadata. Bugger.
Ugh, that's nasty. Most imaging professionals (graphic designers etc) are fully aware that if you don't have permission from the copyright owner, you shouldn't use an image. That includes orphans.
- if you don't know who owns an image, you need to find out.
The Instagram Act needs to be accompanied by a law which makes it illegal to deliberately strip metadata.
Otherwise it's too easy to create your own 'orphan' so you can commercially exploit someone else's image.
