I'm so glad a book on this exact topic has finally been written! I've enjoyed reading your blog so I'm looking forward to reading your book too.

Hi Kathryn, wow, this sure is a meaty, energetic blog post and thanks for making me think more about the whole Pinterest thing. The subject has come to look to me like it's muddled by mixing the separate issues for pinners vs. the pinned. I think your points are great for those who are pinned--the photographers, the crochet designers, etc; the ones who create the pinnable stuff. I know people who don't want to be pinned for the reasons you mentioned. I *love* it when my stuff is pinned! I love the fun people are having with pinning, viewing boards, and re-pinning. Pinterest is definitely onto something!
The issues are very different for the pinner, which you didn't go into as much here. At the end of the day, it's a personal matter whether each individual is comfortable with the Pinterest Terms of Service or not. I'm giving Pinterest some time to refine their TOS a bit before I re-join as a pinner. I'm overall quite happy being a "pinnee" though LOL.
