everybody likes the class action angle, until they know what is involved, then not so much. I still think the best method of fighting back is a counter suit, if one has the time, money and willingness to put in the effort. Aloha Plastic Surgery did just this, and although the results are confidential, I have heard the outcome for Aloha was very good results. By filing the counter suit, they really put the screws to Tylor, and I'm sure it cost him more than he ever would have collected from someone just paying up. his did not stop Tylor, but it may have had a hand in the way Glen Carner and Hawaiian Art Network now do business..It seems as if he has either gotten out of the extortion letter business or has drastically changed his business model.
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

I am in receipt of a new VKT demand letter that was given to me by the recipient.  I will be posting this with their permission as soon I I get it redacted.

Reading the original quote from Facebook, I'm confused. Did the person find the image through Pinterest and use it on his own website? That is how I read it. "We found the image through Pinterest."  If that's the case, then it could be a problem. If, however, he 'repinned', and repinning is akin to hotlinking, then it's not.

Here's another question to ponder. What if a site has a "Pin" button next to an image, encouraging site visitors to share the image via Pinterest (and other social media)? Do they hold any liability here, or does it all fall on the original pinner?

Frankly, I don't care if anyone pins my images (I'm a writer, photographer and content marketer....BuddhaiPi knows me).  As long as they don't stick their name on my images and try to resell them, it doesn't bother me, but then again, I usually share my better images under a Creative Commons license. My choice, I guess.

Anyhow...did they get the original image from Pinterest, download it, then use it on their site?

Or did VK find the image on Pinterest and claim infringement?

That's the difference.
