Wrong again. I run a large network of websites (in the hundreds)
Is Pinterest still a good source of traffic?is entirely inaccurate for those of us who produce original images..Pinterest has never been a good source of traffic..except for those who either take product pictures..or simply steal the images of others..
they are putting it on a website to be downloaded by their users in the first place
I'm making more money with the Pinterest traffic than selling the image itself
I understand that RECIPE websites do rather well with Pinterest though, they may be an exception.
Google should know better as Pinterest, being primarily a mashup, primarily isn't original content.

such as a collage which is kind of what Pinterst does in the context of the collection of images pinned together as a group.
Pinterest is a collection of copies of other peoples images..arranged in a grid via html markup..it is IP theft..
many images are now licensed as creative commons or whatever the heck they call it and it's open source.
That is a ridiculous argument Bill..
Because some things are creative commons ..those who have their non creative commons stuff stolen should negotiate with the thieves ?
I see a big picture solution here to a bunch of image abuse problems that can all be stopped with some very simple technology.And how would browser DRM stop someone hitting the screen capture button Bill ?

If the browsers, sites, and image tools adopt a common license DRM standard suddenly all the normal software updates happen and POOF! the problem goes away almost overnight.
J see it as a doable thing that's way better than my post on how to block Pinterest as it's just the tip of a very big copyright iceberg.
Plus a DRM solution in the browsers could also be implemented in such a way to permanently prevent hotlinking of images not licensed for the site linking the image.

Flickr or websites that claim to be PINTEREST FRIENDLY which will happen as some want their branded images out there as it's free marketing.
