Flickr Blocks Pinterest From Copyrighted and Protected Pictures
Pintrest a very popular photo sharing site has very recently been a subject of copyright concern over its handling of third-party content.And within a no period of time it responded to that concern by implementing a “nopin”code which allows the content creators to prevent their works from being pinned.
Flickr has got all the copyrights of the nopin code preventing Pinterest users from grabbing copyrighted or protected images.THe reprsentative of the Flickr teels us about Venture Beat that it “has implemented the tag and it appears on all non-public / non-safe pages, as well as when a member has disabled sharing of their Flickr content.”
This dossn’t mean that it won’t prevent Pintrest users from simply downloading images from Flickr and re-uploading them, this will make Pinterest cores functionality more complicated if some other major content keepers follow in Flickr’s footsteps.
Updated: Flickr is only blocking Pinterest from private photos or those that have been protected by opting-out of sharing. Via
