Pinterest concerns……

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, you must have heard about Pinterest and more recently, the controversy surrounding the popular site.

Is anyone else concerned about this? After reading it I have to say I am now more than a little nervous about using Pinterest so freely….when I post images on my blog, I make every effort to correctly credit the site/blog/photographer and most times I also provide a link back to the original site if at all possible, yet it seems that most people are innocently   doing something quite illegal without even realising it (as I was)….it seems that even when pinning something on Pinterest ,one should always credit the source of the image and preferably the original source, not merely the website or blog one finds it, as they may have found it somewhere else too! It is somewhat complicated and until I understand it better I am avoiding using Pinterest for now.
