On March 22, 2012 , I posted an article on Pinterest, the pin - board styled social sharing website.
I mentioned it's mission statement and its business practices that I and many other creatives felt infringed on copyright and unwarranted usage.
It has been announced in an email that Pinterest has updated its Terms of Service. A very welcomed email at that. In the coming weeks I will mention the ramifications of these new terms of service.
For the moment I have attached a copy of Pinterest's new Terms of Service as sent to me.
Updated Terms of Service
We think these changes are important and we encourage you to review the new documents here. These terms will go into effect for all users on April 6, 2012.
Like everything at Pinterest, these updates are a work in progress that we will continue to improve upon. We're working hard to make Pinterest the best place for you to find inspiration from people who share your interest. We've gotten a lot of help from our community as we've crafted these Terms.
