- Flickr, Behance, Vimeo and YouTube will start using the Pinterest attribution tool, which Pinterest hopes will eliminate some of the copyright concerns associated with sharing content without proper attribution.
- Content on those sites (that has been authorized for sharing by the user) will now have a “Pin it” button nearby. “On Flickr this is in a menu alongside Facebook, Twitter, email, Tumblr and WordPress,” details AllThingsD.
- Once the item is pinned, it will automatically display an attribution statement including a permanent link that can’t be edited out as it’s repinned by other users.
- “The tool was developed in conjunction with Flickr, which is interesting because the photo-hosting site had previously implemented code provided by Pinterest in order to block pinning of copyrighted images,” reports AllThingsD. “This is a separate project, said a spokeswoman for Pinterest.”
