A message to RB (and artists) about Pinterest

This was a very bad move RB, what were you thinking?! Myself, and as I continue to see, many others are not pleased with this recent “Pin it” feature, I, like so many others found out through message boards about the “Opt out” notice. This should have been offered as an “opt In” option, so that those of us that didn’t catch your 12 hour message window would have had the chance to protect our work! Now several of my pieces, along with so many others here on RB are showing up on Pinterest, without my permission, because I missed that window! And to make matters worse, I have recently learned of another site www.picstopin.com that an unsettling amount of our work is showing up without our permission! We thought that our work was relatively safe here, that you at RB had our best interest in mind, you benefit by sales of our work, we receive our percentage, but without our work, what do you have to sell?!?
I am asking this of you, the staff of RedBubble, to please help us protect our copyrighted works, and make this an option strictly for those who believe that this is an option for increasing sales and not what it truly is…a sight for thieves!!!
