I think the term ‘sell’ is so vague in the TOS that it isn’t as concerning as the copyright theft concerns faced by pinners. (FYI, the no-pin code does not work. Even if someone chooses to use it, the image URL remains pinnable. I don’t think the code is the answer but for those using it, they have a false sense of security.)

Creative Commons is adapting copyright for the future, but we do need copyright to exist. People need to have the right to say in what context their work is used. I disagree that if you put something online you need to know it will be taken. That mindset is backwards. We need to educate people as to what they can and can’t do with other people’s work.
