Character Limit on Pinterest Pins

To be delivered to Ben Silbermann

Petition Statement

To the Creators of Pinterest:

We appreciate the traffic pinterest provides, and the community it allows us to foster, but also feel that this does not have to be at our individual copyright's expense. Recipes, craft instructions and more are continually copied and pasted into pin text, leaving no incentive for users to click beyond the Pinterest servers.

Impose a simple character limit on the pin text. Prevent users from being able to infringe on our hard work with a simple copy and paste.


Bloggers, Content Creators, Recipe Developers and Craft Makers of the world
There are currently 764 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Pinterest continually violates copyright protection by allowing users to copy and paste entire recipes and blog instructs into the pin text. By limiting the pin text to 140 Characters or less, we can prevent copyright infringement.
