Legal Newsflash

TODAY, Chris Pothering, of the Short, Cresmann and Burgess law firm, in Copyright Policies and Pinterest: Did They Get it Right the Second Time? , concludes after a re-examination the recently revised Terms of Use:
"So the end result for the pinner remains the same. Without a successful defense under fair use (and this is an open question), you may end up liable for significant damages. [...]In spite of these changes, however, pinners should still be wary of the fact that, should there be a nasty copyright action, they could end up paying a very large bill."
