@helleborine I can understand your frustration if people are blatantly ripping your images and not giving you credit, but if Pinterest and other sites are linking back to you I don't understand the problem. If you are talking about the ranking issue with Pinterest over Google and your images being linked to the wrong site and not your own, I can understand your frustration, but I still feel basing your income off of Google is a poor business model to begin with since you cannot fully control how your rankings appear, SEO skills or not.
If you not talking about Google rankings and are just upset that people are using your work without permission then I ask you this: what are your financial damages from this and can you prove that in a court of law? And I am interested in hearing what your damages are from both sites that ripped your content with no link back and sites that do link back and give you credit.
