Pinterest Stealing Images

Recently my wife started looking around Pinterest and noticed a balloon frog. Several day’s later she was looking around my sites when she saw the same picture of the frog. Apparently, some Pinterest user like the picture and pinned it to their account.

Now, it’s no big deal when it happens, blogger have linked to images for years and many will address and give credit to the origins from witch the image came.

Pinterest is the wild west of picture stealing. You see too many images to be created. My frog and other images are up there multiple time with no mention of who did the work.

You would think Internet developers would have learned by now, but it seems we must go back to the old days when you need to post an image for the public to view you have a URL slapped on it.

Bring on those high definition devices with all those pixels. You’re just making it easier for readers to see my URL strategy placed on the image that you so baddy want to use.

So you can choose to lead the pack and advance with caution, reducing risk and profit or keep advancing learning, building and breaking new ground. Your advances will create leaders in your wake.
