Newsflash: How are Pinterest users allowed to post/pin real estate listings (with descriptions, pictures, etc.) to their boards?

You can pin a link to a real estate listing from Zillow, Redfin, etc to your board and it returns pictures, descriptions, etc. I am wondering how this is done, acceptable given the copyright-able material (descriptions, pictures) and ownership (MLS, agents) issues?Does Pinterest have agreements with these listing sites, access as a broker (somehow), or other to be able to pull this data (scrape, API?). I’m only familiar with the Zillow API, which does not return prices or pictures!Open to suggesstions on best subreddit for this as well (r/realtors, r/realestate, r/web_programming, etc.)
