  1. 1. Pinterest VS. Copyright Ben Silbermann Presented by: Claire Madison By PresenterMedia.com
  2. 2. •Early Life Where it began • • Raised in Des Moines, Iowa Went to MIT • Graduated from Yale in 2003 with a Political Science degree
  3. 3. •Early Career • Before creating Pinterest, Silbermann worked at Google in the Sales Organization Department and left only after a short time • After Silbermann went on to try and create his own app. Tote, It ended up failing because it not gain a significant amount of attraction, which then lead to the creation of Pinterest
  4. 4. •The History of Pinterest WHERE IS IT TODAY? • • • • In Pinterest’s early stages it did not gain many followers for a while. The first thought of the idea of Pinterest was in December of 2009, only about 5 years ago Was launched in March of 2010, so only about 3 years old Today it has about 140 + employees and almost 2 million users
  5. 5. •What is Pinterest? • is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based images from websites and create collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, "re-pin" images to their own pinboards, or "like" photos. - Wikipedia
  6. 6. •The Issue at hand Copyright Issues • http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2012/1 1/02/pinterest-problem-users-may-runinto-copyright-issues/
  7. 7. Copyright Issues continued Pinterest acts as a photo sharing site/ forum This issue of copyright came up a lot when the site was first launched by the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright act) • • March of 2012 Pinterest released a statement saying they thought they were being protected by the DMCA safe harbor provision when they actually were not.
  8. 8. •Copyright Issues cont. • • • Pinterest users could not actually claim safe harbor status because they are exposed to possible legal action for pinning copyrighted material Since then pinterest has done what they could to avoid this problem. Pinterest added a notification center, which allows copyright holders to request that their content be taken down and removed from the site They also created a “no pin” HTML metatag that was released February of 2012 stating that it allows website to opt. out of their images being used on Pintertest.
  9. 9. •Copyright Issues Cont. • • • Star Burst! In early May of 2012 the site added automatic attribution of authors on images from Flicker, Youtube, Vimeo etc. Most companies in the end do enjoy the publicity. After all of that, there still is a chance that illegal copyright activity could go on without putting the credited sources name on your “pins”.
