How can you take someone else's work?
Surely that makes you just one big jerk!
It's true we can't take things that we don't own.
I think I hear pinners make a collective groan!

Copyright Symbols
It seems that Pinterest has led to a rash of copyright issues regarding photos. As people "pin"something on their boards, they chose from any images that may be on that page - whether they are available to be shared or not.

Hmmm . . .

Flickr has now added "do not pin" code to any images that are copyrighted or protected. Flickr disables Pinterest pins on copyrighted images 

As teacher-librarians, part of our job is to teach students and teachers about copyright issues. Using photos/images to "pin" as a bookmarking icons is definitely walking on a fine line.
