Pinterest has been under fire for a while for their original Terms of Service, which stated, among other things, that by pinning content to your Pinterest boards you were agreeing to let them use that content in many ways, including selling it. There has been a lot of uproar, mostly by photographers and artists whose content is being pinned without their consent, who are worried their creations would be able to be used by Pinterest commercially without compensation to them. Pinterest has finally responded to these concerns, and they sent out this email this morning, explaining that the original TOS was a standard set of terms, and selling user content was never their intention.
