Pinterest ... I have some concerns

This month (February 2012) we have been talking about Pinterest.  Yeap, we got on the bandwagon.  There has been a lot of hype about this site and to be honest I got addicted.  I loved all the pretty pictures and I loved finding new pictures to pin.  I'm also now very wary of Pinterest and I'm not sure if I will continue to pin.

Why?  Well in the last week or so there has been some concerns about copyright and Pinterest's Terms of Use.

Instead of rehashing what has been said already, I have listed some great articles that discuss this issue.  I strongly urge you to read these posts.
