I could not care less about who uses my images.
Because they are not what your business is based on..whereas the businesses of artists photographers and illustrators is precisely that ..and they ( like you ) do not all live in the USA ..so how can they sue pinterest without dropping everything for maybe afew years whilst pinterest with all it's retainered lawyers drags it out til they go brake..
Don't like people complaining about others stealing their work ..don't encourage it, don't condone it..it isn't you they are stealing from..so how dare you say it is OK!
It does not give "publicity", any more than a burglar telling his mates that your house is full of stealable stuff that would look good in his mates houses is good for you..they wouldn't come to buy it from you..they'd just steal it..
What is "tedious" ..or to be honest "outrageous" is those who don't create images...telling those who do ..how great having them stolen is ..
