On request of the users, Flickr embedded the “No Pin” metatag that prevents to pin Flickr pictures on pinterest.
How good for Flickr that now its users are the ones getting eggs in their faces! Because now ALL copyright protected Flickr pictures can’t be pinned on pinterest anymore – or so they say.

Therefore, this metatag is simply useless! Just as on Facebook, the metatag can simply be bypassed, so that once can continue to pin pictures on pinterest!
