I’ve been in meetings all day today and the topic of social media came up. I, of course, had a lot to say on the Pinterest front…In fact, I was kind of like a kid in a candy shop, promoting it as if it is my job, ha. Anyhoo, this meeting also started a long conversation about recent lawsuits where Pinners are being sued for copyright infringement. WHAT?! Ok, ok, I have been hearing rumors of this, but the reality of it is that we need to be careful. I read this article today: http://www.lextechnologiae.com/2012/03/03/why-deleting-your-pinterest-boards-over-copyright-concerns-is-an-overreaction/. It does a nice job of highlighting the ways you can avoid copyright infringement on Pinterest, but this raises, the question – How can I avoid this via ThePinterestWoman.WordPress.com?! Help!!
Dear readers, I would love to continue Pinning and writing about it, but can you – especially my new blogger friends – give me advice? Does a link or mention of the website where the Pin is found, written in the caption enough?!
PS. In one of my meetings this morning my colleague was presenting on the things my team does. We are a team of MANY girls and only three boys. So he said, “we are basically a jack…and jills…of all trades.” I just thought it was funny and thought I’d share. Kind of cute. RANDOM!
