There's a very clear reason from AddThis why the "copy and paste" code
is not accessible. However, in their plethora of API documentation,
you will find that their services can be used with your Web products.

Take a look at disability.gov and how they were able to use AddThis
and make it as accessible as possible.

Cheers!
William
