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!

  15. This is an interesting take! I have several photography and visual arts friends who initially looooved the idea of Pinterest because they saw it as a way to offer more exposure to their work. Later, they often were frustrated by seeing their work ripped from the site and used without their permission.

  17. I totally agreed with you because the credit should be given especially if its your work. Pinterest I use for so many of my businesses and its a great way of putting your business out there, but it definitely sucks when someone tries to gain all the credit.

  20. In its own terms of usage, Pinterest really defines that customers should not pin pics they don't have the rights to, a petition that is being ignored to an absurd degree. Even in the event you connect and attribute, that does NOT absolve you of the fact that you simply took some one else's work and re-appropriated it.

  45. I thought I heard rumblings that Facebook would link up with Pinterest - which would boost this whole platform. From what you wrote, it sounds like the Pinterest platform is going away? That's hard to believe given the popularity of it. But Vine was popular, as well, and we all know how that worked out.
