After reading through all the comments and links provided, I’ve decided to ask that my content be removed from Pinterest. I will wait about a week for everyone to remove the content from their boards and then request that the site remove any remaining photos.
I know many of you see no harm but I have several major concerns after my “research”.

I’ve also blocked content (I think!) on my sites from being pinned – I’d appreciate it if someone would try to pin something and let me know if it’s working.
I want to make clear that I’m not upset or angry about my content being pinned up to this point, I hadn’t paid any attention to Pinterest and am sure that most people using the service haven’t intended any harm.
Here’s another great article along with links to several others.
