Pinterest is a virtual pin board for users to pin-up things they like and share it with their followers. Pinterest is a social networking site where users collect photos and links to objects they like. They pin-up all of these favorite objects to share what they find on the web. It’s a brilliant concept but with one major problem.
Most of the content that is posted to Pinterest contains copyrighted images and there is no way to combat this fact. Until now, there was no way for websites to claim content and have it deleted as per their copyright claims. Now Pinterest has created a way for websites to implement procedures to get their copyrighted content.
