Lawyer and photo enthusiast Kristen has deleted her pinterest account. Sound like no big deal? Actually, why she deleted her account is a pretty big deal.
Since social media took hold, photographers have been both the most beneficiary and maligned users of the sites. While the promotional benefits are endless, so are the ways images can be used without permission, or thanks to insidious terms and conditions, rights can be stolen.
A post on the photoshelter blog nicely sums up photographers’ relationship to Social media: “Why Instagram is Terrible for Photographers, and why you should use it.”
As each new social media site covers new territory, new legal issues arise. Pinning a photo is a form of promotion and appreciation, yet thanks to the newness of the digital frontier, it can be legally damning.

People in the publishing industry agree, the “September Issue” is always the biggest and best ever, especially from Vogue. We can’t argue with that… since we’ve known for years that “Social Media is Sexy, Kinda.” Thank you Fast Company for reaffirming what we knew all along.

We noticed the “SPAM Message” as a result, which left us scratching our beards. To those on the east coast of the U.S. still suffering from the power outage, we hope electricity is restored so you can get connected once again.
In the meantime, here’s to an evening of candlelight, a bottle of fine Bordeaux and your favorite book.
