Pinterest is a website where users can pin images to boards for later reference. When a user pins an image, it is added to the user’s “pinboard.
” Pinterest allows users to share boards with others, and users can follow other users to receive updates about their boards.
Some bloggers worry about using Pinterest photos on their blog because Pinterest is a visual platform. Some bloggers argue that using Pinterest photos does not violate copyright law because Pinterest does not sell photographs.
Others argue that because Pinterest retains all the copyright information associated with each pin, using Pinterest photos on a blog could violate copyright law. Ultimately, it is up to the blogger to determine whether or not to use Pinterest photos on their blog.
