I am linking up with Laura Candler on Corkboard Connections and addressing an important Pinterest issue: when pictures are pinned to Pinterest, Pinterest then owns the photo and can use it in any way. MANY pictures are being pinned from Google searches or uploaded as screenshots and the original owner of that photo does not only get credit for the photo, but that photo also no longer belongs to them. This seems quite annoying for someone who may not want this to happen to their photos on their websites. So, Laura created this "Permission to Pin" button for bloggers to post on their blogs if they are cool with people pinning their stuff. You know I am all about collaboration, so pin away! I want you to pin my things and follow my Pinterest boards! I thought this was a good idea to join in, since you can never assume someone would be cool with it if their photo went viral and they got no recognition. I'm not a teacher to be rich and famous and I encourage you to take my ideas and make them your own - to me, that's what being a teacher is all about. So when you see this button, go ahead and pin!
