I like Pinterest. Being a person that has an interest in jewelry, I find looking at the pictures - particularly those of chokers and cuffs - is really cool.
As someone just starting out, I thought it would be great to add Pinterest to my 'social networking' efforts. Then I saw this article from Social Media Today: Pinning Copyright Complaints on Pinterest
It appears that copyright complaints are surfacing. I haven't looked at the terms and conditions of Pinterest yet, but the article says that Pinterest states people are only supposed to be pinning pictures of images that they have rights to. Hmmm, how many people are following that rule I wonder?
But doesn't that in a way defeat the purpose of the whole site? I mean, why would I just pin up photos of items that just "I" have rights to? I thought the point was to find photos of interest from around the web?
What do you all think? Am I missing something?
