Violating books on Amazon (I think)
::::I agree. To me, his reference is clearly insufficient to comply with the requirements of the license. Indeed, the mention should be as prominent as the credits for the guy himself. The license is very clear about these things. That means, a reference to Wikitravel should be on the cover and frankly, a non-hyperlinked reference to a contributor list on Wiktravel really is pushing the limits. There's no compelling reason why it would be unreasonable to expect normal compliance from a printed / downloadable book like this one. I think a list of at least the most prominent contributors should be included in the work, somewhere.
::::I'm a big fan of re-use, but the rules should be followed at least in spirit, for the whole free license system to work. Isn't this something Bobi or someone from the IB legal team could pursue? Just as a way to support the site and community? [[User:Justme2|Justme2]] 04:01, 24 March 2012 (EDT)
:::::First, a reference to Wikitravel on the cover could be legally problematic due to trademark issues. Second, there's nothing IB can do to repair copyright issues such as this; they lack standing because they are not the copyright owner. Wikitravel's contributors retain the copyright to all of their contributed content; IB only uses the content under license. [[User:LtPowers|LtPowers]] 20:24, 30 March 2012 (EDT)
