This is a fascinating blog post by a lawyer/photographer discussing why Pinterest actually is a torrent site for copyrighted images.
I was so sad to read it and recognize that what she was saying was just sadness and horrible.
I love Pinterest. Everywhere you look there are recipes, beautiful pictures, home decorating ideas, beautiful pictures....
Beautiful pictures taken by an artist and not attributed to them nor are they paid for it.
I have one or two stories on torrent sites. Most I've found have been take down with a ceast and desist email but one or two just ignore it. It bothers me because I work hard on my writing and I'm happy to give it to readers if I choose to but not happy to have someone simply take it.
Pinterest is sadly the same.
I can't enjoy it anymore because every image I see now will haunt me with the idea that I just stole from someone.
My heart is heavy. I deleted my Pinterest acount also.
