The collective of all the user-uploaded images on the internet on copyright-infringing platforms such as Pinterest and its clones, largely without consent of the creators/authors/photographers, for the purposes of image consumption on the image-scraping site. These images are often replicated in large numbers or attributed to search engine image searches, and may rob traffic from the creators' websites.
There are more of my images in the pinnosphere than there are on my website! I lost all my visitors. Why do I bother creating new content if the pinnosphere is making money from it instead of me? It's ironic how the people that think they're celebrating my creativity are actually killing it.
