If they hadn't told me about it I wouldn't have even noticed . . . still, I wonder what exactly it was.Another blogger, Duck Duck Cow dwells in irony, featuring a heavy copyright notice protecting her own blog:
Copyright Notice Copyright 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007. Every paragraph, sentence and split modifier on this blog is the sole property of the Cow, as the author, unless other credit is given. Any use or reproduction of this stuff without written consent of the author is strictly prohibited.The blog features 4 images uploaded from Pinterest that credit the "pin" and link to it, rather than crediting the author directly, and linking to the original content.
That's for irony.
For references, below is a "strike" letter dated Feb 20:
“This is to let you know that we removed one (or more) of your Pins as a result of a copyright complaint. The complaint was not directed against you or your Pin. It was reported by ####### and directed against another user who Pinned or re-Pinned the same content from the following address: #########
While many copyright owners are happy to have their content Pinned on Pinterest, we recognize that some do not want their content to appear on Pinterest. Where, as here, a copyright owner notifies us that they want their content removed under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), it is our policy to remove the allegedly infringing Pin, as well as all other Pins that contain the same content if the copyright owners so choses.
Again, this complaint was not directed at you, or anything you did. We just thought you’d like to know why we removed your Pin.
Happy Pinning and thanks again for using Pinterest.
