    do you PINterest? OR

    is somebody from here doing it for YOU...

    check out all of the photos that have been "pinned" from the quilting board to pinterest!
    most without permission I am sure....this is why Pinterest is in hot water over copyright violations!

    I dont think its a big deal, once its posted on the web and especially to a free site its basically free game to be pinned...

    Not sure I understand what you are asking- You do realize that anything posted on the internet is viewable to the world. If you click on the pics they will bring you back to the Quilt board- so PINterest is NOT claiming they made the quilts, NOT claiming it as their own work- they are just giving more exposure for quilts that have already been posted on the internet.
    I personally don't use that site because when I went to sign up they wanted "permission" to access my address book and there was no way I was allowing that.

    My daughter signed me up for Pinterest late last year. She and most of her friends are newlyweds, and they post pictures of things they like for their home. I go to their Pinterest page for wedding, birthday and Christmas gift ideas.

    I have a couple of pics that have been copied from QB to Pinterest.......I consider it a compliment! If I didn't want it copied by "anyone", then I would have never posted it anywhere on the web!!!!

    Pinterest does follow DMCA procedures for removing images if someone claims copyright violation. They have also released a code that any website can use to block pinning from that site...something that should definitely be considered by QB.

    More and more sites are blocking Pinterest, at least until they get their copyright issues fixed. Remember Napster, the music file sharing site? They got sued out of business for very similar reasons.

    When I see a picture of something that interests me, I drag it to my desktop and "pin" it there...I see no reason to share that with the world. I saw one person's Pinterest page and found a few things I liked and dragged off...with no real interest in where they came from originally. That's the beef with Pinterest. Stuff gets put out there and goes further and further from its source, which is a concern to people who rely on copyright protection.

    I've seen blogs lately with a "Pin-free" badge asking people not to pin stuff from the blog...

    Anything that wants permission to access my address book is an automatic "no" for me.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Wow! that's really neat to see so many of them in one place ... Many of people on QB post on other pages as well so I don't understand the copyright concerns.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    just because you "CAN" does not mean you should! It is not "OK" to publish someone else's pictures without their consent! Just imagine all your grandbabies pix ending up on a kiddy porn site! It is no different with dogs, cats, quilts, your sewing room, etc!

    I don't mind having my things pinned on pinterest but at least give me credit for them.

    Yes I Pinterest. I won't repin any pin that doesn't go back to the original source though. I don't pin anything from the board though.

    Anyone posting personal pictures on the internet should realize the pictures can be copied. There are too many programs that will overide any blocks. Besides all the pics pinned on Pinterest lead right back to the original source and the more traffic the more ads, the more revenue, the more fans the more followers, the more likes. Most bloggers want all the followers they can get. That leads to revenue when a blog gets so many followers.
    All social sites that many use have privacy safeguards that will only show pictures to people you give permission to view (but then they can repost if they want, so don't post any pics you don't want to be circulated by grandma who forwards it to great aunt who posts on facebook with no privacy settings) Most don't know how to set the privacy or don't spend the time to do so.

    Don't you think you are being a tad hysterical ? Comparing quilt pics to baby pics on Porn sites- not even a logical jump. Most of the pics I see of kids here or anywhere else on the internet the babies/kids are dressed ,definitely not fodder for porn sites.
    If you choose not to share pics here or elsewhere that is your choice but trying to scare off others is a bit extreme.

    We are all grown adults posting pictures of things we are proud of and want to share with the world - when I post here I know that there is a great chance it will be seen by more than just our members.

    On Facebook I have the choice of who can see my pics and I choose according to the subject- my flower garden is public , my family pics are close friends only. I also understand that just because I choose "close friends" only, doesn't mean others won't eventually see them as the next person who tags them might chose Public as an option to view the pics.

    You just have to remember when posting pics that they are truly open to the world - common sense goes a long way

    sharon b, you can deny access to your address book on Pinterest.... I wouldn't sign up for anything like that either. I go in through my Facebook log-in.

    I also agree, if you don't want people to figure out you patterns on their own then don't post on the net. It isn't so much the pattern (most blocks are free) it's the technique that has a copyright on it.... I know some will disagree with me on that, but that is what I feel....

    The sad part is there are several re-post of the same photo......

    I thought that was what Pinterest was for, a central place to "pin" things you see and like, and you can also add your own pins if you wish. I use is as a database for things I see I would like to make or remember. I would agree others that if you put a photo or recipe or something of that nature on the internet, no matter what site unless it is a private site requiring a password, it is going to be seen and possibly copied by many. I am not sure what the big deal is really, if you don't want others to see it and possibly copy or pin it, then don't put it on the internet for the world to see. I don't see much difference in Pinning something vs coping to my desktop. Actually pinning it would lead back to the source and the originator would get recognized. Personally I love Pinterest and hope it stays around awhile. Everyone has a differnet opinion, and even though we may not agree I respect your opinion too. As a newbie, I love the inspiration I get looking at all the beautiful quilts on Pinterest. And dang there are some great recipes out there!

    And of course these threads and anything else are available through Google (and other seearch engines). That is how I found this site in the first place.

    I agree that equating this with kiddie porn is going over the edge. If you do not want your personal info (family pictures, quilts, dogs, cats, house, etc.) seen don't post them on the internet anywhere. Anywhere. Simple as that.

    I pin but very little. All the pictures go back to the original source, none of which have posted a Don't Pin message.

    I thought that was the whole purpose of a public "Pin" board? To share ideas, pictures, recipes, etc.

    I didn't know about pintrest but I love it. Instead of clicking on all kinds of links it is all there and it loads super fast for me. I have to visit them more often as I am a very visual person. Quilt picture smorgash board. Yum!

    i am guilty of pinning stuff from here but I ALWAYS ALWAYS put a note that it came from the QUILTING BOARD. I have them labeled under "Quilts I Love". I see a couple of my quilts there too and am flattered that someone actually liked my work enough to post. I am however a rule follower so if I find out it's illegal I will definitely stop!

    That's exactly why I don't post pics of my family or personal stuff! I don't even use my own picture or those of my family in my avatar. I even crop pictures so that you can't see anything inside my house!

    Pinterest is no different than your bookmarks. The only difference is that it is visual rather than textual (textural?). I agree with Bernie. I don't post family photos on the internet without their permission and I'm too lazy to get that. Therefore, the only photos you see is of feet and hands as they hold up a quilt to be photographed. My cats, on the other hand, go on the internet all the time! I thought it was pretty cool that several of my quilts have been pinned by others!
