This Site Will Sell Your Instagram Selfie Without Your Permission for $150

Earlier this year, artist Richard Prince sparked a huge controversy by taking people's Instagram photos, making very small changes to them, and selling the prints as fine art for $100,000 a pop. Now there's a new website that's following in Prince's footsteps, on a larger scale but with smaller prices.

It's a service called Sellfie, which scours Instagram for the hashtag #selfie and then sells the photos as single-edition, high-quality prints for $150 -- all without the photographer's permission.

Startup Turns Animated GIFs Into ‘Moving’ Lenticular Prints

Young people love to take selfies and don't really care about printing photos and putting them in albums.
