---- Pinterest Images: Fair Use or Copyright Infringement?

I see a big picture solution here to a bunch of image abuse problems that can all be stopped with some very simple technology.
And how would browser DRM stop someone hitting the screen capture button Bill ?
And then uploading it to their "pin page" on pinterest..
You want to remove DRM from an image..a 1 pixel all round crop will do that just fine..how long do you think the "pinners" would take to tell each other about how to get around any DRM..? if pinterest didn't just make a "how to" page or a "how to" site to help them in short words..
You and I have been all over this subject publicly and privately Bill ..and kudos to ya :)..you put out a way to defeat the current pinner's pin bar..
But defeating print screen in all operating systems and in all commonly used browsers..been there ..tried that..so have you..can't be done..because it involves hacking the browsers own protections..and then the browsers and the search engines flag the sites that use those "protections" as malware..in serps and when the visitor arrives at the site..
I wrote a basic anti print screen solution in 2001..( it wasn't hard, many others found the same or a similar way ) and then the browsers manufacturers began flagging my sites and others which used it as "malware"..
And we can't all serve our sites only via special browsers..which is the only way that "print screen" button can be defeated..
