Information about Creative Commons Licenses
If you have questions about the license, please read the license deed linked above. For general information about the various Creative Commons licenses, you may start by reading the Creative Commons Licenses FAQ.
At the core of the various Creative Commons licenses, lies the requirement to correctly attribute the author(s) of the work you have used. Attributions should include Title, Author, Source and License. Creative Commons has a page with best practices for attribution. Creative Commons Australia has a very useful collection of fact-sheets for attribution. Another source of information is the New Media Rights "Best practices for attribution".
