I’m sure a lot of you have heard of Pininterest. I have heard about it, checked it and I’m not interested in it. I have seen in some places though where people have “pinned” some of my quilt photos to their “pages”(? I’m not sure if they are referred to as pages)
So what is this blog post about? I came across a blog today that had one of my photos of my Joseph’s Coat quilt on it that they had gotten from a page on pininterest – but the facts were all wrong. I am not making this quilt as a part of a “quilt a long” (a group) – I am not a member of a Joseph’s Coat Flickr group – I am not appliqueing this quilt – I am hand piecing it. I did not draft the pattern out myself – I used a pattern from Inklingo that I purchased.
I left the person a comment to correct the information and she said she will. That is all taken care of.
I realize that by having a blog with photos on it some things will be shared and copied by others. I hope you do not copy any of my quilts without permission but I realize that someone probably will at some point. Some other quilters have asked if it was ok if they pretty much copied a pattern I share on my blog and I think I have always said – “go for it”! But Please ask my permission before you put a photo of one of my quilts on your blog and most likely I will say ok.
But – if you blog about one of my quilts and take a photo from my blog – please try to get the facts right
It is my opinion that pininterest might sometime down the road have copyright issues and I know some others feel the same way as I do – but I spend too much time on the computer as it is with blogging and reading others blogs – I’m not interested in pininterest too.
