I recently posted “A Social Media Model Based on the Safe Harbor Provisions of the DMCA” about the copyright concerns currently being addressed by the social networking site Pinterest.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to speak with Colin O’Keefe of LXBN about Pinterest and how it is trying to avoid allegations of copyright infringement.  While much of Pinterest’s protection derives from the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, the company also attempts to shift responsibility to their users via their Terms of Use.
