How Brands Can Use Pinterest Without Breaking the Law

How Brands Can Use Pinterest Without Breaking the Law | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

By Brian Heidelberger - http://bit.ly/xvHKik 

@WinstonAdvLaw

 

Just because the Internet gives a brand the ability to pin an image to a Pinterest page doesn't mean that it's legal.

 

In truth, the vast majority of images found on the Internet are not "public domain" and pinning or re-pinning them on a brand's virtual pinboard, risks of a copyright infringement claim by the original image owner.

 

How to Limit Liability: http://bit.ly/yQis6i

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)

 

The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:

 

A new Engauge white paper breaks down:

 

**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 

 

**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.

 

**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.

 

This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:

 

"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

 

Curated by Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Business and Beyond"

 

If you're in making Pinterest work for you, you might want to visit my other topic: Pinterest Watch.
