It's a weird thing to me that people would be upset that their pictures were stolen when they are putting it on a website to be downloaded by their users in the first place.

Plus, as a webmaster, I'd think you would be happy about people sharing your pictures with a link back to your site.

Anyway, I get tons of traffic from Pinterest and I'm pretty happy about it. Yea, people steal my images, but I'm making more money with the Pinterest traffic than selling the image itself, so...

While copyright doesn't have to be registered it does if you want statutory damages.

Yes, the minute you create something it's copyrighted but that doesn't afford you all the legal amenities in the event you are infringed.
