“Mommy Style” Forbids You From Reblogging Her Kids On Tumblr

Mommy Style“, a tumblr about some mom’s outfits and pics of her kids, wants people on tumblr to stop using tumblr for its primary purpose:

MommyStyle Rules re: Reblogging

Poopo, Tumblr friends!!! I absolutely LOVE that you all read my blog and that so many of you like the pictures I post of my kidlets. I think they’re pretty cute and it’s nice to know that you agree!!! However, please DO NOT REBLOG photos of my children without asking for my express permission first. I understand that there are certain risks we all take as blogging parents, but it would be nice if we could all respect each other and follow each others’ rules. Thanks!!! xo

She then added in her about me sidebar:

NOTE: PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF MY CHILDREN ARE PRIVATE WORKS. PLEASE DO NOT RE-BLOG OR COPY WITHOUT MY EXPRESS CONSENT!!!

Yes, folks – publicly posted photos on a platform specifically built on a foundation of reblogging and sharing are “private works” and you are not allowed to reblog or share them without her permission. Because they are private works.

Sure, why not.
