Permission to Pin

I just happened onto a blog that had some interesting news about Pinterest's pinning terms. I didn't know and was enlightened by Laura Candler's blog post  HERE about Pinterest's pinning rights.

According to Pinterest's terms, we are agreeing to the following terms:

  • We own the rights to images we are pinning.  
  • We grant full rights to Pinterest to use those images in any fashion!

  • Here are Pinterest's terms HERE.
    Unless you have permission from the blog owner, you can't pin their pitures or posts. This means that from now on, unless I have permission from a blog, I will just be pinning from other pins. Please post the following on your blog:

    You have permission to repin anything that is on my blog that has not been specifically identified as being copyrighted to someone else. You may visit my boards at HERE.
    I still think Pinterest rocks and is an amazing resource. 
    Happy Pinning!
