Want to pin that? Could be risky.

Sad news friends. Have you heard of Pinterest? That bright, beautiful, lovely hole that you can fall into & become addicted within seconds? Yeah, that one.


Well, it turns out that it is super scary in legal terms...being almost illegal, yes, I said ILLEGAL! My good friend & fabulously talented Becca Ellison of Rebecca Ellison Photography has already blogged about this & since she did such an amazing job I am providing the link here: http://www.rebeccaellisonblog.com/


Of course if you are pinning from say, an online magazine or anything that has a huge circulation, you are probably safe. Pinning directly from a photographer's website, not so safe. Photographers make their living from their pictures & taking them without permission is a HUGE deal! How would you like it if someone took your work without asking or paying for it? I know I wouldn't. This is why Pinterest can be dangerous. If you are pinning work that hasn't been approved or you do not give credit to the photographer (granted that is not a safety net) then you could be sued. Yep, sued.


So friends, be careful what you pin & give credit where credit is due!
