They've just changed their Terms of Service and copyright info, and no longer claim the right to sell uploaded images.

Well, that is good news. Because I noticed more artists were staying on than leaving.

Thanks for the update.

I may be in the minority, but I figure when I post anything onto a global entity that starts with the words "world wide" and then go as far as posting it on someone else's equipment (data servers) without being charged for taking up their space and using their energy resources, I will not be surprised if that entity considers it theirs and decides they will do whatever they want with what I placed on their property.

Specifically wrt Pinterest, it seems to me a lot of what is posted has already been posted on the web somewhere else, usually another photo gallery or blog. Not much expectation of protection in those cases.

I think if artists want to post their work on someone else's servers for without being charged, they should not be surprised at some level of unauthorized "sharing". Tis the price one pays for not paying.

If they want to balance sharing with some level of protection, they should might consider overlaying copyright marks on their images like sites that sell photos do. It's mars the artwork, but it makes it harder to thieves to claim the image as their own.

Good point, Des. I'll still never forget the time years ago when I was taken to task for posting a picture of a kite pin I had made (and was for sale) as infringing on this other persons so called copy right when she had published a tutorial in a magazine (which I did not happen to see). Anyway, since kites were invented by the Chinese some eons ago I did not feel in the wrong.

In your case, it wouldn't have mattered if the Chinese were credited with inventing kites or not. Simply posting what you made violates no rules/rights, ethically or legally.

OTOH, claiming you invented kites might. :)

Well, it did make an impression on me!
