Pinterest is now one of the top three social media sites. That’s right, now it is Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
So far, I have only read of one jewelry designer who had her photos misused by a spammer on Pinterest. The spammer linked computer viruses to her product name and images. Pinterest removed the spammer from their site. Read the full Daily Dot story here.
Artists should be aware that there is a copyright infringement form for Pinterest. If you discover misuse of your art image on the Pinterest site, complete and submit the Pinterest copyright infringement form—you will find it here: http://pinterest.com/about/copyright/dmca/
