Blocking Pinterest on your web site

If you don’t want to have your work used without permission on Pinterest, you can find out why, here (read the full story): http://greekgeek.hubpages.com/hub/Is-Pinterest-a-Haven-for-Copyright-Violations and here: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/07/is-pinterest-already-making-money-quietly/, use this meta tag in the header of all your web pages that you want to protect:
<meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />

(WordPress: go to Appearance->Edit->Header(header.php) and place  <meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />  in the next line, right after the <head> tag)

P.S.

Of course this is as ridiculous as ‘No free driving’ barrier around your car, nobody is supposed to use your photographs or touch your property without permission on the first place, but at least it will help you in the meantime, until on-line copyright protection evolves.

I can’t wait until the time when each photograph is automatically linked to it’s owner’s web site, protected from editing, and displays embedded copyright holder’s name and contact information upon mouse over, whenever it’s displayed on the Internet.

Newspaper Copyright Infringement

The Daily Telegraph infringes copyright. Read here.

It seems to be a new trend for some editorial publishers to treat photography as a commodity and photographers as nothing but a middle man between the camera and the end user…

I really look forward to seeing our courts evolve on copyright infringement matters making it much faster and easier to protect creator’s works and settle infringement cases. There is a huge room for improvement.

I am also looking froward to seeing US copyright registration office switching to a subscription based service, which would allow registering new unpublished works on a daily basis, without paying extra and just having one reasonable annual subscription fee.
