How does #pixelfed protect IP? Who owns the images? Can they be 100% deleted? Is this instance by instance?

@amal @switchingsocial @pixelfed Users own the rights to their content, you can add a license to each media upload and when the post or account is deleted, all associated media is permanently deleted!

@switchingsocial @pixelfed How well-polished is Pixelfed? Worth to join already? The more users in the early stage the better though 💪

I think it's pretty polished, it federates with Mastodon etc and it's approaching the release version in the Spring.

If you're interested, give it a go, see what you think :)

@switchingsocial @pixelfed Sweet! Need to give it a try. Any apps that compete with the major players is great. #leavefacebook
