Permission To Pin Fern Smith's Stuff!

Permission To Pin!
Laura Candler at Corkboard Connections has blogged about a very important Pinterest fact.

She starts by saying~

 "Did you know that you need permission to pin?"
What? If you're on Pinterest, you need to read this blog post!

Recently, I read a disturbing article,
Pinterest Users Need to Read the Fine Print, and I learned that when we signed up for Pinterest, we actually agreed 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! 
Don't believe it? You can read the Pinterest Terms here. Seems like a site that's set up for sharing and collaborating would make these terms more obvious when someone signs up.....I'm now aware of these terms, I have changed how I'm going to use Pinterest. I'm no longer going to pin images directly from someone's site or blog unless I have permission. If you have a blog, be sure to read the whole article to find out how you can give me and others permission to pin.

Yes, you have my permission to pin!   

So Laura has put together a page, a Linky Party type page, and here is what she says about it ~
I'm no longer going to pin from anyone else's site without permission. How will I know that I have your permission? I'm hoping you'll join my Permission to Pin link up to show that your site welcomes pinning.

Here is the link again to Laura's post on the blog.
