Putting on an old hat: On the Perils of Pinterest

I was featured on CraftTestDummies.com

Today my guest post for Craft Test Dummies went live, so I guess I am allowed to share it :) The subject is Pinterest, particularly the various controversies surrounding its terms of use, copyrights and related issues. You may not know that I was a copyright lawyer before I got too sick to work, and it’s that hat that I wear in this article.

  • Pinterest has nailed it as far as I am concerned, they are changing the was webdesign is done, the futurewill be different as other companies creat websites that make full use of the screen, sharing done right!

    • Sorry for the delayed response, this got caught in my spam filter for a bit and then my computer has been all crashy and we’re still unpacking so I haven’t had time to fix..*sigh* sorry, excuses excuses I know!

      I like Pinterest’s concept although you are right, there are several ways they could improve it. But at the least they have modified their terms and conditions a bit to remove the “sell” term so at least people can safely pin their own stuff without fear of what Pinterest might do with it later. A small step but an important one…
