I would be fine if Google only used Pinterest data as a social media sign to help rank pages. If people want to pin it, then it must be ok. If several people pin the same content, then it must be really good and it should move up in the serps.
The problem however is that for some Google Image searches the Pinterest images show up instead of the original image on my website. Google knows that all Pinterest content is copied and should NEVER list it. It's almost like selling stolen goods.
