A problem that plagues similar sites such as Tumblr is that the vast majority of accounts are just people posting whatever they have stolen from the internet with no attributes to the creator. I've seen many cases where accounts won't even properly reblog to try and infer they are bringing new content.
To combat this it would be great to offer some sort of way to have accounts labeled and system promoted as original content creators.
Perhaps 2 labels would be appropriate to have an account labeled as an original content creator, and then be able to label specific posts as original since of course accounts may want to reblog or post outside work at some point.
Concerns then would be the need to create an admin system to prove / approve an account as an original content creator and any possible future disagreements, however I think the effort would be worthwhile since original content is commonly appreciated, but easily lost in the sea of general posts.
It may sound a bit elaborate at first, but could be similar to partner programs of other social network sites.
