    Taking creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0 to my site

    http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.en

    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).
    If I pick up some images from wikimedia commons licensed like this, and publish them on my site with clearly stated who author is, link to original wikimedia commons authors page provided .....
    Do I have to look for each author permission to do that ? Bold stuff suggest that I should , coz there is nowhere specified the manner !?

    example: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index...4_%28HS%29.jpg


    hmm, here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Co...ikimedia#CC-BY

    When re-using the work or distributing it, you must attribute the work to the author(s) and you must mention the license terms or a link to them. You must make your version available under CC-BY-SA.
    in the manner specified by the author is left out.

    The permissions for that example image show "attribution required" and links to CC-BY-SA. It appears that all you need to do is author attribution. Really, since there is an author link available, you can clear up any confusion by contacting the content creator.

    The link links 'nowhere' , that is to another wikimedia commons.
    If you are logged in, than you can send mail to author, but who knows if he is
    looking at mail at all.

    Will wait a bit, and if no response, will use common sence and do standard author attribution.

    The author did not directly specify directly any particular method, so sticking the image on a page with correct attribution (which does not imply the content author has created this image for you) should tick all the boxes. The image must also be re-released under a CC (or alike) licence.
