Image attribution is bad idea

SiPlus October 29, 2010 User blog:SiPlus

I see many blog posts complaining about image attribution on Wikia. Attribution MUST be removed. Why?

  1. Most images are fair-use, and the uploader is not author.
  2. Why image uploaders are marked, and text editors are not? All editors should be equal.
  3. I've never seen image attribution in paper encyclopedias. Wikis are electronic encyclopedias.
  4. It's not important for content to mark image uploaders.
