    I have been looking through google for nice pics and pinning then with a link to my site for the past month or so and today some crazy lady starts commenting on all of my pins saying that I am steeling pictures and they are wrongfully linking to my site.

    Lady is crazy commented on like 20 pictures saying she is going to notify the people who these pictures belong to telling them to sue.

    I am not worried because if they sue me then they gotta sue everybody else on the Internet, but I just wanted to share my experience with this crazy women.

    What are your thoughts?

    Pinterest is engaging in an illegal activity by hosting copyrighted pictures. It's a toss up whether or not they'll get away with it. But you, the user of Pinterest, are pretty safe. There are people who are upset about Pinterest stealing pictures but it is Pinteret that will go down for it, not the users.

    The biggest annoyance would be the damage she's doing to your profile by commenting all the time. Maybe you could report abuse and get her blocked or even better get her banned.

    Megaupload just went down over copyright infringement and you think pinterest is safe? Here is what a lawyer decided to do about pinterest when she checked into it.

    Do you know how many copyright letters go out every day to webmasters?
    It's probably in the upper 100,000's.
    You can't think that they wont sue YOU because their are others out their. If you are easy to get to and they know they can win, they will come after you and not the others.
    That is the wrong way to think of it.
    I say keep it up until you get a DMCA request to take it down. If you don't do that then expect a letter from a attorney.

    You never know, you could have taken a picture that is hers and she's pissed of that you did that and did a little digging and found out all she needs. So she went
    on your account and found all the other pictures and well commented on it. She's probably just pissed of you toke her work and are claiming it as your own.

    Just a little example to that quote im quoting:

    You are driving on the highway that is speed zone 55. But you and 5 other cars in the same lane are going 60-65. All cars just trailing each other and all normal drivers.
    (You are car #2 out of the 5)
    Cop car standing their and just waiting to catch someone cause its the end of the month and they need to fill quota.
    The cop cars radar picks your car out of the line of 5 and the cop starts coming after you.
    The cop stops you and the normal process starts. You tell the cop "But the other 4 cars where driving the same speed as me for the past 10 miles"
    cop: "sucks to be you, here is you'r $150 ticket. Have a nice day."
