Pinterest & Copyright?? - UPDATED

I have been watching the Pinterest explosion with interest (pun NOT intended), and I have come across some information which concerns me ;-)

I often wondered how people could pin something (as good as taking it from the original source - be it a blog, or a photo gallery) and not seek permission from the original owner.  Yes, there is an option to credit the original source, but how many 'pinners' go back to that original source?

Now it seems the 'plot has thickened' and there is more to this than just pinning.

I have discovered a wonderful blog post HERE which articulates so wonderfully what my concerns were and gives some more information.   

UPDATED:  some links for 'how to stop pinning' HERE - thanks to Sharon from Pin Tangle for sharing ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.

We had to go out for 2 hours and find 5 things - Water, Food, Lights, Numbers & Door
