I saw that article as well. Very interesting discussion it takes.

The whole digital era is turning copyright on its ear. Music industry was first. The movie industry is getting hammered as we speak. Next is photo. It is commoditizing the arts.

This is an interesting development...

Pinterest users shop big--the average price tag is double that of a buy from a Facebook user. Visits from the social network have jumped 145% since January this year, and, as a source of revenue for stores Pinterest now contributes 17% of social media traffic--up from 1% in Q2 last year.
This on the day Facebook goes public...
