Do you have a Pinterest board?  It is all the rage these days, but it has also been receiving some criticism due to copyright concerns.  Attached is an article from the Lawyerist.com that reviews the recent changes made by Pinterest in response to the criticism and also answers the question:  Is Pinterest a social media tool or just trouble?

Many lawyers don’t see any potential benefit and far too much risk in using this new social media site.”
