      When you click on a pin, the red follow button will show up.

    When you click on a person - there's a follow button right below their picture.

    When I click on the "pin" buttom, says I can log in using Twitter.  I do that and it says I don't have an account.  I go to Twitter and it says the app for Pinterest is approved.  I'm stuck.  Any help please.

      Same thing happened to me, Mary. I had to repeat the process about 8 times before it worked.

        Thanks, habee.  I think I'll just cool my jets on this for a while.

      Some people have absolutely no clue about copyright roll

        I'm pinning only my own photos. That's okay, right?

          Yes smile

          I was talking about some of the comments smile

        Not sure if it's not having a clue or simply not caring! The modern teen and twenty year old thinks nothing of copying hundreds of songs, movies etc - sadly it's the way the world is going, and music companies are struggling with this rather than finding ways to monetize it! It's wrong I know - but it is the way of the world!

          Yep, kinda makes one feel good about putting anything of worth--either text or photos--anywhere on the net.  Sigh!

    Well, if people are going to jail for violating copyright laws, the jails are going to be awfully crowded with 10 milion users! smile

    "Sorry, Pinterest Users: Websites Can Now Block Pinning [VIDEO]

    "Pinterest may be an Internet hit — especially with U.S. women and Facebook CEOs. But not all companies want to ride the pinboard wave of referral traffic.

    Now Pinterest has released code for companies that want to block the pinning of content from their sites to personal pinboards."

      Great news I think for such companies. I see by the comments that again, many pinners don't give a toss about copyright.

      In particular, this section is exactly why those  of us who want it to be optional do want it to be optional:
      Pinterest is moving towards correcting these flaws. Pinterest is currently following the Digital Millenmium Copyright Act, and will remove any image that someone claims is violating copyright laws.

      "In addition, Pinterest is letting publishers embed a “Pin It” button directly on their website, which is a virtual permission slip for people to share content"

      That has been the claim of us who are worried about the button all along if we want to back a DMCA claim. And here is proof that this was what the intention of that button is.

      At the same time, hubbers who want the button  would have the button. Both sides happy.

        It sounded like this was a way to keep anything from being "pinned," which also I took as if someone had added the PIN button to their browser, they still could Not pin!!!
        I hope This is what Hubpages will add to our profiles to choose, or just taking the Pin button off our page does not stop the issue altogether.

          What I beleive they are trying is using

          <meta name=”Pinterest” content =”no pin”/>

          per subdomain - this should allow you to opt-out of being pinned regardless of how someone does it.

          HP is testing this - but is not sure whether sub-domains are recognised as separate sites on Pinterest.

            That is the question, sub-domains. Hopefully staff will come up with a solution soon.

    That is a good idea, I wonder if it works on people's blogs?
