Finished the 11th postcard this afternoon.
Eight more to go!
One of the blogs I enjoy reading is 'Apple Apricot' and today she has a really thought-provoking and interesting post about copyright and Pinterest which you can read HERE. How many of us are guilty of pinning away without giving any thought to whether what we're pinning has been properly attributed to the original creator? Have you found pictures of YOUR work appearing without due credit? I know I have. I don't get bent out of shape about it, but if I do happen upon some of my work that isn't attributed to me, I like to leave a tactful comment thanking them for liking my work well enough to pin it. To date, every time I've done that, the pinner has been most apologetic and immediately rectified it. I find being nice tends to work - there's no sense in wading in with guns a-blazin' because chances are the pinner has been entirely innocent and just simply isn't aware. Now, having said that, and having read Wen's post today, I will be checking my pins and if I can't find the originator I will be removing them from my boards - or, as Wen suggests, make my boards private so that the things I pin are for my own reference and therefore not perpetuating the problem. I suggest you go and read her post and give it some thought.
Today your quote, very fittingly, is from Bangambiki Habyarimana.... "Don't copy, get inspired"
