I Give You Permission to Pin!

Up until recently, I viewed Pinterest as my own personal web bulletin board. But within the last week, there has been several articles floating around about the "small print" on Pinterest that I guess many people failed to read.... Apparently, once something is "pinned"onto a Pinterest board, Pinterest then owns all rights to use, duplicate and sell this image. Well, my biggest concern when realizing this was "oh my goodness, I pinned so many things.....I gave Pinterest the right to own someone else's image without their permission!"  I can't imagine Pinterest not catching wind of the "copyright" and "ownership" issue soon; I am curious to see how things change in the future. In the meantime, I give you permission to pin WHATEVER YOU LIKE! In fact, I encourage it : )

If you love teacher blogs check out Laura Candler's Corkboard Connections Blog. She has started a linky party for teachers who want to announce that they have "granted the right to pin". Check this site out when you get a chance. Not only is it super resourceful if you are looking for resources for teaching literacy, but because there are several teachers who have already started to link up.
