Companies Must Opt-Out Of Pinterest To Protect Copyright?

If I am reading this blog post correctly, Pinterest expects companies complaining about copyright violations to opt-out of Pinterest by installing third party code on their websites? I have a feeling this is going to end up in court.

As a company, we care about respecting the rights of copyright holders. We work hard to follow the DMCA procedure for acting quickly when we receive notices of claimed copyright infringement. We have a form for reporting claims of copyright violations on our site here. Every pin has a flag to make reporting easier. We also know that copyright is a complicated and nuanced issue and we have knowledgable people who are providing lots of guidance.
