Description Miraceti 2014-11-13 21:14:36 UTC
Message wm-license-cc-conditions-attribution-text is missing a condition that a link to the used license must be provided when the work is used. Unfortunately, this is omitted quite often by licensees. I feel we should add this. I agree it would make the text longer but it would make the conditions clearer too.

----

I suggest a following change:

Current text:
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).

New text:
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) and provide a link to the license text.

----

I guess, the link to the license does not have to be provided in this text because it is usually somewhere near on a page anyway.
