Hi. I am not a lawyer, and below is just my personal opinions.
First, I interpreted that you will create a collective work based on
Next, reading 4a. and 4b. of the license, I see the following requirements
(please refer to the original license text for more details, because below is
edited by me quite a bit):
a1) include a copy of, or the Uniform Resource Identifier for, this License
a2) keep intact all notices that refer to this License and to the disclaimer of warranties.
b1) keep intact all copyright notices for the Work
b2) give the Original Author credit reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing by conveying :
-b2.1) the name (or pseudonym if applicable) of the Original Author if supplied;
-b2.2) the title of the Work if supplied;
-b2.3) to the extent reasonably practicable, the Uniform Resource Identifier, if any, that Licensor specifies to be associated with the Work, unless such URI does not refer to the copyright notice or licensing information for the Work;
-b2.4) and in the case of a Derivative Work, a credit identifying the use of the Work in the Derivative Work
Your suggestion is as follows:
>"Figure 2: Photos tagged with "train" at Flickr.com. Photographs taken by Jakob
>Rask, Kris, Phillip Capper, Z Rahen, Jos� Cuerva, David Bleasdale, Art Vandelay
>and Johndan Johnson-Eilola. Flickr.com, accessed 3 May 2005."
And here is what I think:
A) I think it is perhaps safer to give credits in a way that readers can
tell which work (photo) is taken by whom.
B) It is necessary to include license URIs and license & warranties notices,
C) Other things should be there in a way "reasonable" to the medium.
I speculate it might mean to use caption to convey essential info., and
use some footnotes, endnotes, or appendix to convey other info, if it is
C) Suppose my speculation is correct, titles of works, and URIs associated
with the works could be reasonably accomodated in one way or another.
How does that sound?
