Pinterest Poaches Michael Yang From Google

Posted Jun 10, 2012

Pinterest has hired Michael Yang, the deputy general counsel at Google. Yang will be the head of legal at Pinterest, which is the fastest growing social media service. Pinterest is dealing with some serious legal issues because most of the content hosted on their website is copyrighted. At Google, Yang had to deal with legal issues around Google’s terms of service, Google Buzz, and explaining the new privacy policy to Congress.
