Someone reacts to a copyright notice from Pinterest.
Yes. That the linking creates images that are large enough not to bother clicking through to the original, that they turn up in search results (and not even single file to hide their numbers!), that the credit link is easily neglected/lost... and that images on Pinterest can then be freely used on other sites.
When Pins Go Wild
It does do a lot of damage and that’s what possessed me to write about it, because I don’t think people realize (even if they aren’t bloggers) how important it is to give proper credit where it’s due.
Except... credit doesn't help if your content has already been viewed on Pinterest and reposted on "Fred"'s website. Credit or not, Pinterest allows hotlinking...
