Robin was able to reach out to the artist and the artist has stopped selling the card. So how did the imitating artist find the card? A customer requested it because she found it, uncredited, on Pinterest.

Artists, designers, and mom bloggers all ADORE Pinterest and have been avid users for months. Boards on Pinterest can be an amazing diversion, or, as Robin puts it, “Pinterest is visual crack for the visually stimulated.” But there’s a problem with the simplicity of Pinterest – once you’ve installed the “pin” button in your browser toolbar, you can slap anything you see on the web onto your Pinterest boards. Unfortunately, that often does NOT include attribution.

 

Many artists and crafters are beginning to talk about the issues with attribution on Pinterest. As an avid Pinterest user herself, Robin had some great suggestions for using the site without hurting artists, designers, and crafters. “There are lots of amazing things going around on that site, and many are just being shared, without any credit.” Robin said. She will take a minute to ask the original pinner where it came from before pinning it. She’s often found her stuff pinned, and emails the pinner to link to her stuff, and they usually do. She says, “Always credit the artist and link to the original to be sure!”

As head of engineering for the popular pinning site Pinterest, Jon 'JJ' Jenkins spends most of his day enabling others to solve technical problems.
Kelly Lieberman's insight:

In his job, Jenkins says, the No. 1 concern is how to build a really great team that is capable of building out all the potential of Pinterest and "living vicariously" through them. Most of what the site will be in two years has not yet even been invented, he notes.
