No ‘Moral Right of Attribution’ in the United States … But U.S. Grass Roots Attribution Grows Easier

Mozilla (noting that people who want to do the right thing and give attribution should be able to easily) has launched “OPEN ATTRIBUTE” which is a free and easy suite of tools that makes giving attribution easy and fast. It is only available for Creative Commons’ licensed content, but it’s so deliciously easy and straightforward that we may expect to see it expand to a wider category of works.

Another demonstration that people really do understand the incentive that drives some authors the right to be acknowledged; to have their work attributed to them and not someone else.
