Pinterest have quietly responded to the copyright uproar by releasing a piece of code that you can put into you header . This should issue a warning to the pinner reminding them that they do not have permission. Don’t know if it works yet.

This is the code:

Β  <meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />

BTW I nearly had my 5 minutes of fame as a producer for Channel 4 News read my blog post and asked if I’d do an interview! I think Pinterest put paid to the story by releasing the code. Oh well I can sleep well tonight!
