As Pinterest grows at break-neck speed, it has to iron out kinks along the way. One of the issues that's been floating around the Web recently is the idea that "pinning" might actually be violating copyright laws.
Silbermann explains that as of today, Web sites will be able to opt-out of having their images used by Pinterest's users.
"We understand and respect that sometimes site owners do not want any of their material pinned," Silbermann writes. "For these folks, we provide a snippet of code that can be added to any website."
The code can be added to the head of any page on the Web site wanting to opt-out and once installed it will tell pinners, "This site doesn't allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!"
In other Pinterest news, according to LL Social, the virtual pinboard site also instated a new 500-character limit on pin captions this past week.
