    Not too long ago, there was just one camp on WordPress.com – those who begged for Pinterest on WordPress. How quickly that changed, so has Pinterest’s Terms of Use. Just about every social sharing site I know says they own your stuff. I’m a professional photographer who prefers to live life in a meaningful productive way than to fight what may be / usually is a lost cause. My view of Pinterest: Pinterest Drives 30% More Traffic to My Blog.

    One more note on my above comment, like Pinterest, it’s clearly written in the WordPress.com TOS that if you reblog something to your WordPress.com site, if the original copyright owner takes legal action, it will be directed at the member who reblogged it, not WordPress.com.

    Jan, the Pinterest sharing button on WordPress.com that everyone was asking for and which was made available is optional. You don’t have to use it in your site unless you want to. Obviously, those that clamored for having the Pinterest share button are not the same people who want to have Pinterest blocked, unless they’ve changed their minds.

    The Pinterest “Pin It” bookmarklet is, for all intents and purposes, “Press This”. It was only after Pinterest became a tsunami that they released the meta tag that allows site owners to block others from using the “Pin It” bookmarklet on their site and pinning their material. I can only hope that WordPress.com will give us the option in our settings, especially since sites like flickr have already done so.

    For now, like reblogging, either you learn to live with it or you go someplace where you can include the meta tag in your site’s header info.

    Thanks for reminding me. I need to take care of that on several client sites.

    Only recently, and by chance, I discovered that several of my original paintings and photographs have been ‘pinned’ directly from my WPblog, without permission, so I too am very anxious to have the option to block pinning altogether.
    All my other sites, where I offer my images for sale, have this facility. Please, PLEASE, can we have it here too!!
