Pinterest suspended my account and I cannot access it. They sent me an email without giving a reason other than I violated Pinterest’s Community Guidelines. Not 10 minutes earlier, I pinned a pin about a book from Amazon with my amazon affiliate link. The book cover states “copyrighted material.” Stupid me missed it. This must be the reason for the suspension since there is nothing else that I did in the violations category. My big mistake. I submitted an appeal with an apology. Not sure if I will get my account back open.
As an Amazon affiliate, how could I have avoided this? Should I stay away from promoting books? What other products might be copyrighted that should be avoided? (I know not to use the Amazon logo, name, and no adult material, etc.)
