I am using an image from Flikr that has a Attribution-ShareAlike license. With the license, I am required to cite the author of the image, which is something that I already do. But the license also requires that I link to the license. The image capsule presents a problem with this as it has three fields:
Name of source: flikr user name
Source url: where image is on flikr
Caption: This image is of something relevant to my hub.
There is no place to put the license url. I could put it in the caption which I am doing for now, but it doesn't look good.
You don't need to put license URL if you're giving a linkback to original author's image page. The image is already in SA so there is no chance of any issue of explicitly linking to license. Besides there is no need to link to CC license page, you just need to give attribution to author.
Yeah but according to the "Notice" section of the CC license, you do have to:
"For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work."
Take a look at this hub from Marissa. See if this way you can give attribution ? AFAIK, Link to license page is not necessary, only mention of "CC-SA" etc is fine too.
Yes, but is this correct? I mean, the license itself says that the terms of the license must be mentioned. This blogger:
http://www.skelliewag.org/a-complete-gu … es-162.htm
also says that the license itself MUST be cited.
As per skelie's article CC-SA forces you to linkback author and license. If it's ONLY attribution license then you don't need to link to license but only to author of content. I guess that clears up some confusion.

Picture captions, alt tags and image attribution are a mess on HP.Why not introduce a new capsule solely for captions and attribution, entirely separate from the picture and its alt tag?When a hubber uploads a picture, tell them to add an alt tag. It should be the simplest description of the...

I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me on copyright and attribution issues with respect to products sold on Amazon. If I write a hub that focuses specifically on one or more Amazon products, where do I stand with respect to using the full-size images corresponding to the products I select for the...

We're experiencing a temporary problem with image serving. It should be back to normal shortly.

I'm trying to insert an Amazon URL for a specific product. When I put in the URL and save the capsule, the capsule on the Hub says: "Amazon is not providing us a price for this item. Therefore it can not be displayed."Yet, the product is live on Amazon with a price. How can I...

I'd love to see a photo credit line in the photo capsule. It would be in addition to the caption and would be a hyperlink. If you used it, you'd get "photo by [photographer's link]:" under the photo.A large proportion of Hubbers use Creative Commons photos and this would...

Folks, yesterday I was trying to upload some images onto an existing hub. It had been imported from Squidoo, and in the original Lens, I had used links to images on my personal web site, which apparently HubPages doesn't support. I succeeded in uploading one image to replace an imported image, and...
