    How exactly do I give credit?


    Okay, so I'm working on a new track with a few samples from this site....how exactly do I give credit to the contributers?

    Say I post this track on soundclick or garageband...do I just say eg."This track uses these samples..." and list the exact link to the sample?
    What if I make a cd? where would the credits go?

    everywhere where you put a download link to the track, or where you add the audio (for example if you make a CD), you have to mention which sampes you use.

    The legal code is right here (and it's pretty readable):

    If You distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform the Work or any Derivative Works or Collective Works, You must keep intact all copyright notices for the Work and give the Original Author credit reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing by conveying the name (or pseudonym if applicable) of the Original Author if supplied; the title of the Work if supplied; to the extent reasonably practicable, provide the Uniform Resource Identifier (note by bram: this is the URL), if any, that Licensor specifies to be associated with the Work or a Derivative Work, unless such Uniform Resource Identifier does not refer to the copyright notice or licensing information for the Work; and in the case of a Derivative Work, provide a credit identifying the use of the Work in the Derivative Work (e.g., "Remix of the Work by Original Author," or "Inclusion of a portion of the Work by Original Author in collage"wink. Such credit may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided, however, that in the case of a Derivative Work or Collective Work, at a minimum such credit will appear where any other comparable authorship credit appears and in a manner at least as prominent as such other comparable authorship credit.
