It would be wonderful if there was a feature added where we could turn on a flag that would appear on all our hubs that states "Permission granted by author to pin to Pinterest." This would really help to clarify whether or not it is okay.
You have the option to turn the 'Pin' option off - so by having the Pin button on a Hub you have effectively given permission...of course only other hubbers would know that!
I read some articles that led me to believe otherwise; however, I did just find a guide to Pinterest after reading your post and I agree with you. I will assume that if the feature is turned on, I have permission. Thank you for your perspective. )
Thanks, SimeyC, for beating me to the answer. Cathleena, SimeyC is correct. You can turn off the Pinterest button from appearing on your Hubs by going to My Account > Profile > Social Networks and clicking the checkbox to "disallow users from pinning my Hubs."
Otherwise, appearance of the button is permission to Pin.
As an aside, I'm still baffled that folks turn it off. It's huge source of traffic for HubPages. Personally, it's been a huge traffic driver for my Hubs, and I use all of my own photography. Anyway...discussion for a different forum.

I just tried to pin a hub, but I was told it was going to be blocked because the site was known to have suspicious activity. I'm using Chrome. The pin was going to be from my hub about decluttering and organizing kids' toys, which does not have a red skull or anything. I assume it's not a...

I have 62 hubs and was getting about 500 views a day during good times, before Panda until they went down to 200.Then I started using the "Pin It" button in my Chrome bookmarks bar which allows you to pin every picture featured on a Hub (unlike the HP sidebar pin button which only pins...

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...

I was talking with someone on their hub, but all of a sudden, I get a 403 Forbidden that says I have no "Permission" to access the hub.In fact, I can't even see the person's profile or even his other hubs. What the heck?
