Pinterest Will Not Sell Pinned Images

In my blog post of To Pin or not to (show) Pin(terest) I warned myself and other creatives to protect their assets. Pinning of images we find Online is fine, as long as we create the link to the original site, keep copyright in mind. And of course we refrain from using an images when the No Pin icon shows up on someone's blog or website.

Not showing what we've created ourselves however, is a limitation that makes using Pinterest less interesting for many of us.

Today I found a message from Pinterest in my mailbox in which the owners share some changes to the rules. Read all about it on the official Pinterest blog

Green Light Update: Alarmed responses from wary creatives has caused Pinterest to review and update their Terms of Use.

They got the message! 
Ben and the Pinterest team must be/are creatives too.
