Trending Now: Pinterest Copyright, James Cameron, Evil Spirits

The explosively popular social media site, Pinterest is all about pinning photos of things that interest you. But it turns out, the site may have a pitfall. Legal experts are concerned about issues of copyright infringement when it comes to pinning just anyone's photos. Lawyers weighed in on the topic, with many saying that users will likely not be sued for posting photos they don't own provided they aren't trying to profit from the photo. There is a safe way to post without worrying at all.

"If it's your work, your photo, your content, you can feel really comfortable posting that type of material without having to worry," said legal correspondent Steve Eder.

On Yahoo Monday, American film director James Cameron made top trending headlines. The director of “Titanic” and “Avatar” made it to the deepest part of the ocean in the Mariana Trench down 36,000 feet.

"Well you know Jacques Cousteau used to say, 'If we knew what was there, we wouldn't have to go,'” Cameron said. “So we have to go because we don't know what's there."

The expedition was a joint project with National Geographic and the watchmaker Rolex.

On Facebook, the story of the day went to the evil spirit parade in Detroit, Mich., a city ready to do just about anything to turn their luck around. Thousands turned up to ward off a red dwarf demon that cursed the city hundreds of years ago.
