CRIMINAL OR SOCIAL?
So, another fun, time sucking thing to do online. Because you realize after a bit that you want to add your own actual stuff to the boards, not just look and repin. Doing that, my mind starts working as I am looking around for images to add. Is this okay, legally and all? For my little blogs read by a mere handful of folks and not monetized, I tend not to worry about using images from the web even though I know that legally I should be purchasing or getting permission to use them.
The best way around this issue to to not use these sites.
The second best way is to give full credit to the owner and publisher of the images, linking directly to the original source so that others are able to go back to that source and purchase from or otherwise benefit that source.
That is how I plan to proceed as I spend hour upon hour looking at sumptuous images of dream homes, travel destinations and garden projects, fashion I could never wear and recipes I might give a try.
