    Hello guys,

    currently I am getting into touch with pinterest.
    The site looks like a perfect opprtunity to eartn some extra Adsense cash.

    Well, the thing is, image material is good, very good.
    I could well need this in order to create some unique and catching content for the site where the traffic is going to be driven too.

    Would you dare to get the images from Pinterest and lets say upload them as a featured image in your posts? I know many image scrapers are offered here in the download sections.
    Or would it be too dangerous in case of any copyright infringements?

    If it was not allowed, I also thought of some kind of workaround: there are pluginss that set the featured image as an url, hence no upload on my server and no copyright infringement.

    Is that correct?

    Best regards people and Godspeed

    Would this suffice?
    I mean, copy the image from pinterest /www.example.com
    and just set it featured and guve credit like: source www.example.com/example ?

    Sorry I am asking these "dumb" questions. I am from germany and as we are good friends with the us, there are also all possible or impossible sueings in my country.

    Maybe there is also a guide on how to properly use images for MNS/authority sites/web2.0?

    Best regards brothers

    According to me, It would be Ok if you give credit like you wrote above.
