Pinterest: A Copyright Nightmare?

Pinterest: A Copyright Nightmare?

Has everyone discovered the new time-sucking, weirdly-addicting, immediately-gratifying Internet sensation Pinterest yet? The website is so addictive it’s distracted us from writing this blogroll for at least 15 minutes.

Well, surprise surprise, it seems that there are some serious copyright issues with Pinterest’s business model since its “very nature is to encourage the repinning of  [artistic and product] photos, which encourages users to use them as they like.”

 

Thank you to staffer Elizabeth Marren for the link!
