Is it okay with you for others to pin your hub photos on Pinterest?
I don't mind others pinning my photos, but after reading some hub articles on this subject, I think a mechanism is needed to protect those of us that do. There is an option available for us to do this on most all hubs, very few authors have turned it off. I'm not sure if it's because they don't mind others sharing their photos/links on Pinterest or if it's because they don't know about the option to turn it off. Anyway, I want to pin and need to create a list of Hubbers that don't mind. Saying "yes" here may serve as a "hub magnet" for others looking for permission to pin. Is this okay?
I don't mind at all if others Pin my photos. Most of my photos are from either the Wikimedia Commons or the Flickr Commons. Those photos I believe anybody can share even without my permission. As for my own personal photos I don't mind if people share those either.
It's fine with me too. I've found that if you put a great description with the photo then it can generate a lot of traffic. Most of my photos are my own or for use via commercial commons anyway.
If you pin a photo from a hub that was used under attribution copyright, it's actually breeching that copyright.
I nearly always create a "Made For Pinterest" image now, with the title of the hub, so people will pin that and cannot steal it for their own use.

Tried to redo a pin tonight and Pinterest has a message that they are having a problem. Anybody else with this problem?
