Yes me again
Good morning all, there seems to be confusion on what Pinterest is, people seem to think all they are doing is pinning a picture and link to their pin board so they know where it came from if needed again...
The issue I have with Pinterest is that whatever is pinned on Pinterest has been taken without permission of the owner of the picture.
How about I come in to your home and take a picture from your family album and publish it on Pinterest, oh yes I link the source back to your place.... that makes it ok not to ask ?????
If you have pictures taken by a photographer they become his, you purchase copies from him, but he owns the copyright.
Sometimes you can be lucky and they give you permission to have copies made anywhere or as many as you like but not in general.
All I am asking is that if you like the picture and would love to publish it somewhere ask first. I know I am not making friends with this but that's ok too. It is my blog and I think I have the right to decide if I want any of my material taken from this blog and used somewhere other than my blog.
