This is the contents of an email I received from Pinterest regarding their updated TOS. I know that many on here have been hesitant to use their site. They have been forthcoming with me from the beginning and I still post links to my work there. You, of course, have to make your own choice. At this time in my case, the advantage of being integrated with the Pinterest social network and associated links to my work is an overall gain for me and my SEO strategy with social networking. I am sharing this for information purposes. I love the +Google+ community and want to foster open dialog on issues like this. Transparency is important to all of us. I know that +Google and their associated ventures received a lot of scrutiny regarding the combining of the various privacy policies into one policy.

I'm not saying trust everybody unconditionally but in a medium that is rapidly evolving, let's keep our heads about us.

**************************
Updated Terms of Service

Over the last few weeks, we've been working on an update to our Terms. When we first launched Pinterest, we used a standard set of Terms. We think that the updated Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, and Privacy Policy are easier to understand and better reflect the direction our company is headed in the future. We'd encourage you to read these changes in their entirety, but we thought there were a few changes worth noting.
Our original Terms stated that by posting content to Pinterest you grant Pinterest the right for to sell your content. Selling content was never our intention and we removed this from our updated Terms.
We updated our Acceptable Use Policy and we will not allow pins that explicitly encourage self-harm or self-abuse.
We released simpler tools for anyone to report alleged copyright or trademark infringements.
Finally, we added language that will pave the way for new features such as a Pinterest API and Private Pinboards.

We think these changes are important and we encourage you to review the new documents here. These terms will go into effect for all users on April 6, 2012.

Like everything at Pinterest, these updates are a work in progress that we will continue to improve upon. We're working hard to make Pinterest the best place for you to find inspiration from people who share your interest. We've gotten a lot of help from our community as we've crafted these Terms.

Thanks!

Ben & the Pinterest Team

Who considers their photography to be art? Of those that do, how many of you feel that the physical print is very important? Of those that think it is important, how involved are you in the choices made for the print (paper, ink, printer, icc profile)?

We spend a lot of time and effort capturing the shot and then finishing it with our individual workflows. All of that is essential to the photo. How many of us take the next step to complete the presentation by printing the image? If you take that step, do you print your own or let someone else do it? Are you involved in the choice of printer used? Do you understand the differences? Do you know about the various types of fine art photographic paper that can make a huge difference in the finished print?

I ask because I see a lot of discussion about shooting and processing but very little about printing. The image in digital format and the image in print are completely different.
