This is a FREE COMMUNITY EVENT that is being hosted by local high school students on Sunday, March 17th at 1:30 pm in the auditorium of the Peabody High School Building.

    Hi there– Wikipedian/open-culture-buff here. It’s not sufficient to say “Photo credit: Wikipedia” because Wikipedia neither produced nor owns the photo. In terms of actual attribution, it’s no better than saying “Photo credit: the internet.”

    The license of this photo is CC-BY-SA 3.0, meaning you need to use the name of the actual photographer (attribution) and then “share alike”. In this case, the photo (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pittsburgh,_Pennsylvania.jpg) was taken by “phillq23″. You are indeed “sharing alike” by linking back to the photo’s page on Wikipedia, so that’s good.

    For an example of correct citation and sharing-alike of Creative Commons media, you can see how I do it on my blog– for example, here: http://billcprice.com/futureimperfect/2013/03/smartphones-smartfriends-or-smartfoes/

    I cite the creator, use the creator’s name to link back to the original source (effectively “sharing alike”), and specify and link to the specific license under which the photo is being used. That last part isn’t strictly necessary if you’re linking back to the original source of the image, since the source also includes the license, but I always do it because if the original source goes offline, the licensing information is lost forever, putting you in legal limbo.

    Best,
    Bill
