Permission to Pin

We click “accept terms” without ever reading them. I know I do, don’t you? We’ll join a new page, social site, etc. and click on accept because reading all the legal jargon is, well, boring and takes up too much time.

This subject was brought to my attention by a blogger I follow. In the terms on Pinterest, we have agreed that the pictures we pin are ours legally and that we give Pinterest rights to use those images in any fashion.

All I can say is that I’m glad teachers (and crafters) are all about sharing their ideas. I follow so many blogs and see so many good ideas that I want to share with my fellow teachers on Pinterest. Although I may not used them in my music classroom, I have friends in “regular” classrooms that are always looking for new ways to do thing that may be interesting in something I find.

If, in my pinning, I have pinned something of yours that you don’t want to share, please contact me and I will remove it.

Otherwise, if there is something you see on my blog that you’d like to pin, permission granted.
