I never would have heard of Pinterest until I saw the new little button in my WP.com sharing dashboard, and when I found out about it, I thought it was cool enough to blog about... so I did.
Then I come to the WP forums and see all these threads about folks wanting to block Pinterest and whatnot. It's kind of depressing to see the adamant stance of folks against sharing. shoreacres in a previous thread posted a link about the legal ramifications of using Pinterest, and I wanted to respond with an article on why everyone should keep using Pinterest because Copyright law is horribly broken anyway.
I decided to bite my tongue to avoid derailing that thread, but I would very much like to hear what other folks on the WP blogging frontlines have to say. I presume nobody here is a lawyer, so let's get that out of the way and get right to business: Is Pinterest biting off more than they can chew in this scary copyright culture of ours? Or do they have the right idea, pioneering a new and innovative way of sharing content?
The blog I need help with is isharacomix.org.
