Pinterest Lets Content Owners Control How Their Images Are Used
Pinterest has introduced a solution that will ensure that the content shared on the platform is not misused. The Content Claiming Portal will allow content owners to claim their content and will give them copyright ownership and authority over how their images are utilized on the platform.
The Portal will allow content creators to remove all existing versions of their images and limit future versions of their content on the platform.

To access copyright, content creators will have to fill out an application that asks them to provide proof of content ownership.
