Not so easy to pin it down – more on Pinterest

A few days ago I wrote about an article by Sean Locke on the new site Pinterest that seems like yet another photo copyright infringement tool.

Sean has written a follow-up on his blog, More Thoughts on Pinterest. This is a very interesting read because of two things. Sean tells the story about a real case of copyright infringement on Pinterest, what the photographer did and how the person who did it reacted. – What? Me? Copyright thief? – It also highlights some of the aspects of using other people’s photos without authorisation, how for instance it can hurt innocent people (so it’s not only a question of picture theft).
