Trademark

Pinterest respects the trademark rights of others and expects Pinners to do the same. Pinterest may disable access to content that misleads others or violates another's trademark rights. Pinterest may also suspend or terminate users who post or share such content. In addition, Pinterest may transfer usernames as appropriate.

If you're concerned that someone may be using your trademark in an infringing way on Pinterest, let us know by submitting a trademark infringement report via our easy-to-use and online form. We'll review your submission and take appropriate action.

While the trademark infringement report form is the best way to reach us with your concerns, you can also email us at trademark@pinterest.com.

If your content is removed based on a trademark infringement report, you can contest it by emailing trademark@pinterest.com and by letting us know why you think the report is invalid. Please include the trademark infringement report reference number. If you want us to forward the information from the trademark infringement report, let us know by emailing trademark@pinterest.com with the trademark complaint reference number. We'll be happy to send it along (though we may remove personal contact information).

It’s our policy—in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion—to suspend or terminate the accounts of people who repeatedly infringe trademark rights or are repeatedly charged with infringing trademarks or other intellectual property rights. Actions against such users may also include temporary suspension of their ability to post content, among other things.

Submit a Trademark Infringement Report

To submit a trademark infringement report, you can fill out our online form.

If you'd prefer not to use this form, please send the following information to trademark@pinterest.com:

  • Your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature (for example, by typing your full name).
  • Identification of the trademark(s) you believe are infringed (e.g., provide a trademark registration number or materials demonstrating common law trademark rights).
  • The content on Pinterest you claim to be infringing your rights, including the information we need to help us find it, like the URL to the content (Pin, board or account) on Pinterest.
  • Explanation of why you believe the reported content infringes your trademark rights.
  • A declaration that:
    • You have a good faith belief that use of the trademarks described in your report infringes your trademark(s) or the trademark(s) of an owner you represent.
    • You represent that the information in your report is true and correct.
    • Under penalty of perjury, you own the trademark(s) allegedly infringed, or are expressly authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
    • You understand that a copy of the report may be sent to the user responsible for the content reported.
  • Your mailing address, phone number, and email address.
Appeal a Trademark Infringement Report

If you believe a Pin was removed in error, or that the trademark owner was mistaken in some respect (e.g., you contend your Pin does not infringe the reporter’s trademark rights, or the reporter does not own the trademark), you may contest the report by emailing trademark@pinterest.com. To submit an appeal, please provide:

  • A statement explaining that you have a good faith belief that your use of the trademark is non-infringing and the basis for that belief
  • A statement that you understand that a copy of the appeal may be sent to the current account holder(s) impacted by your appeal
  • Your name, address, and telephone number
  • A statement that the information in your appeal is accurate

Anti-Counterfeiting on Pinterest

Pinterest prohibits users from selling or promoting the sale of counterfeit goods on Pinterest. Counterfeit goods are goods that are promoted, sold, or distributed using a trademark that is identical to, or substantially indistinguishable from, another’s trademark, without authorization from the trademark owner.

If you believe content on Pinterest is selling or promoting counterfeits,, you can submit a counterfeiting report using our easy-to-use and online form. You can also report alleged counterfeiting by emailing us at trademark@pinterest.com.

We'll review your submission and take appropriate action.

If your content is removed based on a counterfeit report, you can contest it by emailing trademark@pinterest.com and by letting us know why you think the report is invalid. Please include the report reference number. If you want us to forward the information from the report, let us know by emailing trademark@pinterest.com with the report reference number. We'll be happy to send it along (though we may remove personal contact information).

It’s our policy—in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion—to suspend or terminate users found to engage in blatant or repeated counterfeiting. Users whose content is removed for violating our counterfeit policy may also have additional consequences, such as having access to certain services or programs revoked (e.g., advertising privileges, merchant and verified merchant programs).
