We subscribe to the general policy described by Stack Overflow ( https://stackoverflow.blog/2009/06/25/attribution-required/ ) written by Jeff Atwood:
"All the content contributed to this or other related sites is cc-wiki (aka cc-by-sa) licensed, intended to be shared and remixed.
But our cc-wiki licensing, while intentionally permissive, does require attribution.
Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
I thought it was pretty clear what “attribution” meant, but given the semi-scammy way the content is popping up in some seedier areas of the internet, maybe not:
(there may be others; these are just the ones I know about)
So let me clarify what we mean by attribution. If you republish this content, we require that you:
Visually indicate that the content is from Industrial Automation or the Industrial Automation network in some way. It doesn’t have to be obnoxious; a discreet text blurb is fine.
Hyperlink directly to the original question on the source site (e.g.,http://industrial-automation.net/ia/ask) - [our example]
Show the author names for every question and answer
- Hyperlink each author name directly back to their user profile page on the source site (e.g., http://industrial-automation.net/ia/user/Support ) [our example]
This is about the spirit of fair attribution. Attribution to the website, and more importantly, to the individuals who so generously contributed their time to create that content in the first place!
Anyway, I hope that clears up any confusion — feel free to remix and reuse to your heart’s content, as long as a good faith effort is made to attribute the content! "
