Stop Instagram AI Integration Policy

Dear Mr. Mosseri,
There is a new Artificial Intelligence Policy Instagram and Meta are adding to the Instagram Application as of June 26, 2024. We, the users on Instagram, do not want our art and likenesses to be used as sources for Meta to train their Artificial Intelligence on. We ask that you remove this program and give us our privacy and autonomy back. Technology may be entering a new age, but as Americans and users of this platform, we have a right to choose whether or not to be part of it. The American Declaration of Independence states;

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.--That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” (Paragraph 2)

You, sir, are the the head of Instagram’s government, and we the people are holding you accountable to not only ask for our consent when such policies are put in place, but also listen to us when such consent is not given. Our consent was never given, so it is your responsibility, your duty, to  listen to us when we are concerned about your company’s choices. Now it is time for you to take action, and abolish this incorporation of Artificial Intelligence that not only affects Americans, but people all around the world.
Sincerely,
The Users of Instagram.

Why is this important?

Instagram is going to use your photos, your likenesses, your images, your art, to train their Artificial Intelligence, Meta, without consent or compensation. This will affect artists, who will be out of a job if and when AI becomes advanced enough to create art without human involvement. This will affect people who decide to put their faces on the app, that will have to worry about fake inappropriate photos of them being spread across various platforms. We witnessed this happen with celebrities such as Taylor Swift a few months ago. None of this is acceptable, and we cannot let them get away with this.
