Thanks for this post. I bought into the whole scare thing. This post made me feel like I was reading "Pinterest for dummies".(Meant that in a good way, not bad...like clear cut, well defined laws, easy to understand without a law degree) This helps a lot. Thanks again.

Thank you Anna- this is just what I was looking for. It seemed like the other post jumped the gun a bit and I couldn't put my finger on why. Other than I found it hard to believe that the 3rd largest social media platform would be setting us all up for lawsuits with every pin. I think the explanation that there are steps that come before that should be reassuring.

"The pinning to a board in Pinterest will likely cause increased traffic to the original source's site, which for most will be considered a positive effect. "

That is not my experience. I have checked my weblogs and people look at my pictures on pinterest and don't follow through to my website.

Therefore, the effect of Pinterest is negative for me, as a content provider, since it robs me of my traffic.

Meanwhile, it is Pinterest that profits from my work.

When your images are pinned a great deal, DMCA take down notices are very tedious.

Please do not pin content that is not yours, or content that does not have a "pin it" button.
