First run / Firefox

Once you’ve installed the Open Attribute add on, which makes it ridiculously simple to copy and paste a properly formatted attribution for Creative Commons licensed work on the web, take a look at the right-hand side of the URL bar, and you’ll see a little icon.

Any time that icon appears, you are on a page containing license information. To copy the properly formatted attribution information, first click on that icon, then click “Copy Attribution”.

To view the full attribution, along with other information about the page, click “More information”

It’s that simple!

Open Attribute works on pages with Creative Commons licenses. If the license code doesn’t include complete attribution information, Open Attribute might not be able to generate the full attribution for you.
