Since the purpose of Pinterest is for users to populate the site with images they do not own, the network has been in a legal gray area ever since users discovered that pinning content from around the Web might be on the wrong side of the law.

Déjà considéré comme "le nouveau Facebook" par certains, le site est le premier début 2012 à avoir atteint aussi rapidement une audience de 10 millions de visiteurs par mois. Ce succès fulgurant cache néanmoins une polémique grandissante à propos du respect par le site des règles du droit d’auteur, car la contrefaçon semble inscrite dans ses principes même de fonctionnement.
