The copyright issues for Pinterest are significant. They post thumbnails of images, but then display the full images on their site. Google was challenged on this and won because they weren't displaying the full image. I can't imagine that Pinterest won't have to make some changes. Their terms of use indicate that you are responsible for obtaining the rights to post what you do. I'm not sure this will stand-up in court, but they are clearly trying to make you the user responsible for any violation of copyright.

Thanks for the session. Just checked OSU Extension's most pinned and two of the most popular photos we do NOT hold the copyright for! We received permission to use in our 2002 BP (Before Pinterest) articles.

I agree, and I heard that at SXSW they discussed this. Keeps getting batted back and forth.

I didn't go to the Pinterest session at Sx. There was so much to choose from.

It's changing. Nowhere near as geeky as it once was.
