In the Part 1 of this series we presented an overview of what Pinterest is and the legal risks members take by engaging in the activities that Pinterest promote. In this part we will look at what Pinterest does to the copyright notices embedded in digital content that their members copy to the Pinterest website.
(March 19, 2013) Many thanks to David Riecks, writing for the DAM coalition, for publishing the updated results of the latest IPTC study of social media practices. We welcome the news that Pinterest now preserves embedded metadata both on upload and download (but not with "Save As"). Nonetheless, be sure to add a watermark to all images, in addition to supplying the correct metadata to any social media uploads, if you choose to use those services. If you have any questions as to how to utilize IPTC, please refer to this manual. Then go over to the Embedded Metadata Manifesto and support their efforts!
Now, read the following for good advice, in general, about what can happen with your social media submissions, keeping in mind that public pressure has encouraged Pinterest to change one important practice for the better. Content creators and rights advocates spent many, many hours advocating for fairness in social media practices. Only with your help and involvement will the situation improve for all.
And remember, Pinterest and its users are not out-of-the-woods yet. So far, Pinterest has not monetized its content. The copyright infringement dime may drop when they do. Why? See this Trademark and Copyright Law opinion.
