Pinterest addresses copyright concerns - The Washington Post

A lot like YouTube for images (and other multimedia), but without Google’s resources (and legal department) behind it

In a statement, the company said that it believes that it is protected under the safe harbor of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and that it is committed to quickly responding to alleged copyright issues. Other companies, such as YouTube, adopt a similar strategy on content posted to their Web sites.

Pinterest also said that the feedback from content creators has been largely positive — not litigious — because Pinterest drives traffic back to other Web sites.
