What you're describing sounds equivalent in spirit to the Creative
Commons Attribution license. It makes credit mandatory, not optional
(per your second item), and it doesn't specify a format for attribution
(your third point), but otherwise it sounds about right. You should look
at the license and the license terms and see if they're roughly
acceptable to you.
