Do you use Pinterest?  I do and one thing I have always wondered is how you could “pin” all of these wonderful pictures to Pinterest, without having permission from the photographer or owner of those pictures, and not land in any legal trouble for doing so.  I mean this just shouts copyright violation all over doesn’t it?  Well recently I ran across a very well written piece by a blogger who also happens to be a lawyer, and she very eloquently cleared some of this up for me.  

The post by Kirsten Kowalski, entitled “Why I tearfully deleted my Pinterest Inspiration Boards” is written well and is easy to understand (since she is a lawyer after all).  My suggestion is to read her article and see what pinning and repinning on Pinterest could mean for you.  Once you check it out and come back to tell me your thoughts!
