Pinterest's Evolving Attribution Data - FlickR

From Pinterest's blog:

"You can now find a Pinterest button in the Flickr share menu to easily pin everything that you can share via Flickr, including photo pages, favorites, and groups. If you pin frequently, the Pin It button will show as one of the two shortcuts directly on the photopage.

Attribution appears below the pin’s description and provides a permanent link to the work, its author, and where they host their content. Because attribution cannot be edited, photographers can rest assured that pins and repins of their work will credit and link back to them.

We think simple and automatic attribution is a step forward for the sharing of content online, so we went even further than adding attribution to pins directly from Flickr. We will also retrieve attribution data from Flickr if a photo is pinned from a website or blog embedding a Flickr image.

Seems like a dance between what we'd like to get out of the promotion opportunities of sites like Pinterest and what how Pinterest would like to do to make money.
