Pinterest When to Share and Not!

A colleague and friend Janice from mostlyblogging.com recently asked me whom had a Reader asked a few questions pertaining to Copyrights. So, here we go.

http://www.mostlyblogging.com/avoid-plagiarism/

Question 1:
(“Is it a violation to share music videos?”)
I will assume this would pertain to YouTube music videos, it depends, if a person shares a music video to Facebook or Twitter it houses the link to the original source that it was obtained from, as bloggers we like this for a few reasons, generate more traffic, gain more subscribers and so on.
When is not ok to use the music video. Simply put, if a person were to download the video then upload the content to their YouTube channel then this is referred to as stealing.

Question 2:
(“Old photos I find at yard sales/flea markets. I have no idea who the people in the photos are, and the pictures were for sale, so is it okay to post some of these photos?”)
To the best of my knowledge this should be fine to share on Facebook, personal blog, I would probably make some sort of statement about the photos in question like, Found these lovely old photos from the 1900’s while at an Estate Sale. Besides, most of us have seen old photos as well as very old photo albums selling on EBay and other sites. The original owners either through them out, Landlords or Apartment managers through them out which in most cases -considered as abandoned property.

Question 3:
(“Pinterest. I thought it was for finding photos, etc. to put on your own board, but have heard that you can be sued for doing this. How can Pinterest stay in business if everyone posts photos from everywhere onto their boards. Is this wrong? I’m scared to use it any more!”)
This one is a bit tricky especially when it comes to the wording within their Policies. There are some concerns, now, if the item in question is your own work then you still hold the copyright. Fine and dandy right, there is a caveat within their policies. I will provide an excerpt from their Policy page.

b. How Pinterest and other users can use your content
You grant Pinterest and our users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, save, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content on Pinterest solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using the Pinterest Products. Nothing in these Terms shall restrict other legal rights Pinterest may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or our policies.
More simply put
Copies of content shared with others may remain even after you delete the content from your account.
c. How long we keep your content
Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from Pinterest, we may retain your User Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, Pinterest and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, re-pin, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared through Pinterest.
https://policy.pinterest.com/en/terms-of-service

For most of us, the main concern comes from the part that Pinterest and other users could modify and create deviated works from it. So keep this in mind if you pin your own material.
A good rule of thumb to use when pining a pin, especially if the work comes from a Photographer, if you are not sure- then do not.

#Loveuary ❤ Days 20 & 21 – Special

Syl65's Blog

My Sister Ritu http://butismileanyway.com has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.

I doubled up today ❤❤


Special female and male

My mom and sister are always in my thoughts

But looking outside the scope of things

There is another who occupies my thoughts

You came at a time when I was about to concede

To go about life quietly being me

Just as I was about to shut the door

Your gentle knocking pleaded with me to leave it open

All I could see was light like I had never seen before

And from that day forth

I decided to live openly once more

You will always be an inspiration to me

Hey, bro

I miss you down here

When I come across something that I know you would appreciate

You had your battle to fight and I believe you won

Dood-Frank – Here We Go Again.

Reflections of past arrogance, delusions of supreme superiority forged with forked tongues as they slither back and forth.

Remember those glorious years, granny in her toasty home, a Vet home from his/her deployment settling back to civilian life in loving arms and castle. A time when the majority described as gut retching pain seeing their granny foreclosed on, their Veteran relative lose their castle. Perhaps not, we Homo sapiens live short life spans considering other species, with this short life span; we also have short memories and forget certain events that occurred only about a decade ago.

I am talking about the 2008 financial crisis where many lost their steven mnuchin foreclosed on elderly peoplejobs, homes and self-respect while people like Steven Mnuchin whom foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman for a twenty-seven cent error and he made millions by doing this.  There were others who followed the path of Mnuchin moral code, Some were indicted while other went scot-free. There are those on the far right that I believe to some degree, care less who lost their home during this time period as long as it wasn’t them. They may say, ” You should have managed your funds better”, to other sarcastic remarks.

I bring this up for those that do have opportunities to purchase homes and in recent news as of today, Trump has ordered to have the Dodd-Frank reviewed and stated that he will be cutting out many regulation, regulations that were meant to protect us the consumer from greedy pretentious asinine corporate world, like big banks and Wall-Street that caused this in the first place which is a left over from George W. Bush Jr Administration.

No one likes home-work, yet I am giving everyone homework. That home-work consists of a few fact based movies that pertain to the 2008 financial crisis.

The Big Short (2015)

Margin Call (2011)

Too Big To Fail (2011)

Inside Job (2010)

Frontline: The Warning (2009)

The Flaw (2010)

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005), though not based on the 2008 crisis, it provides in-depth interviews of corruption and greed.
