    The bigger issue IMO is that Pinterest is silently acquiring “perpetual, irrevocable, transferable” rights to any images that ARE uploaded by the image owner.

    Does it help that any image that I post that is ‘mine!’ is appropriately watermarked?

    I don’t think it would be the best idea for websites to use the nopin tag. Especially as it sometimes leads to traffic for the site hosting the photos.
    All this will do is make people save the image to their computer and upload to their own sites, leading to a loss in traffic for the site that owns copyright to the image.

    Just for the record – everyone is welcome to pin our images :) The more the merrier!

    I think it’s great that Pinterest is providing this as an option, but I also hope many publishers don’t take advantage of this. The power of Pinterest for building a brand and the sharing aspect of the service would allow a publisher to grow its audience!

    I’ve heard alot about this new tag but it is not working on my blog. So far I have sent certified letters to Mr. Silberman and while they remove the current stolen images they are doing nothing to prevent further theft. I would think a filter for all of us to opt out and putting the onus on Pinterest to prevent theft of our photos would be smart instead of trying to make us track it down, spend our money on cease and desist letters and keep their millions of users from stealing our photos. Oh, and not to mention when Pinterset consolidates pins from our websites they do NOT provide a complete url to the source. Can you please help me with info on how and where to install their bit of code so the code will work on my blogger blog? I have installed it but it is not working. I am at ramseytina5@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

    A very small step.
