The meetup "Licence Attribution Generator" aims to present the tool ( and discuss how others can translate and adapt it for their language communities.


The Licence Attribution Generator assists users who would like to re-use image files to generate correct license descriptions/attribution texts for image files under a CC license from Commons and Wikipedia. The text is based on the original Creative Commons license and the intended use, for anyone planning to reuse CC licensed images. The tool provides a userfriendly step by step instruction. Especially with regard to Wikimedia’s advocacy work, this tool can become extremely useful as it is improving legal certainty, and thus stimulating wider distribution of Wikimedia content. It's all Open source, the software as well as the texts are freely licensed; they can be translated and adapted for other language communities.
