Copyright and Pinterest

ugh.

all these delicious photos of homes and interiors and other yummy stuff.

and who doesn’t get lost on pinterest for HOURS?

nowadays all you read about is this person or that basically deleting their whole pinterest boards because of what?

litigation.

they are afraid.

turns out it is not that glorious after all.

used to be able to quote someone and give the citations:  name, source.  not so with pictures or graphics online.

here is what you can do to protect yourself and your pictures from being pinned:

you just need to add the following code to your <head> section of your web pages.

<meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />

and if you want to use pictures which are not your own?  you best ask the creator of that picture.

i hope i don’t forget.
