Pinterest will be sued into oblivion sooner or later. Lawyers are lining up already if you Google the subject for a class action lawsuit.
I'm sure at least one company that loses rankings to Pinterest will get ticked off enough to fight it the same way with authors and Google.
I doubt they will win, as long as Pinterest removes pictures when requested it can hide behind the usersubmitted proviso that youtube and Google hide behind.
I speculated in another thread that pinterest has been appearing google images much more after this update and I think it might because Google may be in buy out talks with Pinterest and that is why this is happening. If this is so and Pinterest does come under the Google umbrella, there is no class action that can succeed. Google are the masters of handling take down requests.
