Original is that factor that it is really diverse from other social networks with its interface and regarding “stealing”, I think it is only a unique way to share others pages and create power backlink
1. There is a huge difference between sharing and stealing. Please give me the URLs of your websites if you own any. I will be happy to "share" all your content and of course link back to you. I am sure that, as a reward for the sharing, you won't mind that I'll try to find a way to make money out of your content.
Sharing = showing thumbnail size images and "force" users to visit the website with the original.
Stealing = showing the full size images on Pinterest => there's no need to visit the website with the original full size image.
2. The backlink "power" from Pinterest is worthless.
