actually there's no need: all images are copyrighted from the moment they are created unless the author donates it to the public domain - even you holiday pictures of your family are protected - although they most likely aren't very "artsy".
So, all that's needed is a tag in the image format that indicates the year the copyright is likely to expire (set to 0 for those that are so inclined).
Same goes for the nopin meta: it's the reverse way, all is protected by default. If pinterest want those of us that are so inclined to enable their users to pin our content: then it's time to take action and add a "pin ok" header. The burden is on those that want to be allowed to do things, not the other way around.
I'm half inclined to actually go a and steal one image myself (would not know how to get a model to let me take what I want for myself -at least not willingly-) of the most horrendous rape in the most graphical way I can think of and add some text around it explaining that what they are doing is making me feel exactly what the image shows...
Next rewrite rules so that's what pinterest gets when a pinner tries to pin it. Sure they can work around it, but they first get to see this.
What's stopping me: image theft and the risk of accidentally showing it to somebody else.
Maybe some real hardcore p*rn site would be willing to donate a standard image for this ?
(Oh, that's right most of those get scraped to no end too - just not pinterest I guess)
