Fine Art America Makes A Stand On Pinterest

Fine Art America Makes A Stand On Pinterest

Users

Fine Art America has made their feelings about Pinterest loud and clear! Very thought-provoking insight about the harm Pinterest can do to photographers/artists. Sean Broihier made no bones about their stance and got right to the point with this opening paragraph:

Pinterest is enabling copyright theft on a global scale and doing immeasurable damage to artists, photographers, and copyright holders all over the world.

If you’re a photographer/artist, I think you need to run over there and read the full article NOW: Pinterest Enables Copyright Theft On A Global Scale

He raised some concerns that I hadn’t even thought about yet, like search engine competition.

By the way, one thing that I did learn by reading this article –> Fine Art America recognizes that some photographer/artists have completely embraced pinning while others have not, so they’ve made accommodations for both sides. They allow pinning BUT you can disable it in your account if you’d like to do so.

I had resumed pinning after Pinterest finally changed their TOS. After reading this, will I continue pinning? I’m not sure. What are your thoughts?

Either way, I think I’m even more in love with Fine Art America than ever! <3

  1. FAA seems trustworthy enough. If the new Pinterest TOS says they won’t be selling stuff, then it ought to be safe, but then who would suspect this in the first place. I found out for certain that Red Bubble suspendes accounts arbitrarily and does the same, or if you close your own account, they keep and sell the images, don’t try to talk back. Anyway, this was my lens on the subject:
