inadvisable asks: Wait? How is that different from Tumblr? Same policy, yes?
» SFB says: Actually, not so much. This sell thing is actually a fairly notable difference. As Anthony De Rosa just pointed out on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr don’t claim to have the right to sell your content, just to openly distribute it. Twitter does, but only in API form. Pinterest, meanwhile, says this: “By making available any Member Content through the Site, Application or Services, you hereby grant to Cold Brew Labs a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast, access, view, and otherwise exploit such Member Content only on, through or by means of the Site, Application or Services.” That is a significant difference, and one that could hurt Pinterest among businesses. They may perhaps want to narrow that. — Ernie @ SFB
