Party Time

First party: The copyright-infringement enabling platform, eg., Pinterest.

Second party: The agent of copyright infringement, aka the pinner.

Third party: The victim of copyright infringement, and the website the pinner is scraping content from, for the ultimate monetary benefit of Pinterest.

Fourth party: Through the intermediary of the EMBED code, a website utilizing images belonging to the third party, unlawfully uploaded to the servers of the first party by the second party, presumably in order to profit from the display of that pictorial content, just like the first party.
