My 2 cents: 

Data on pageviews endpoint is available under: (you need to expand each endpoint to see this, sorry, that  UX could be better).

You can add to pageview tool a note about licensing of the features it provides. For example: see the footer on wikistats:

"All data, charts, and other content is available under the Creative Commons CC0 dedication."

Hello Analytics!

I have a licensing question. If someone were to share a screenshot of the Pageviews Analysis tool (or similar), are they bound the REST API licenses described at ?

I assume so but wanted to make sure. I was prompted with this question because a user was considering using screenshots in a scholarly article. They wish to publish it under a CC-BY license.

Please tell me if this statement is accurate:

The underlying pageviews data shown in Pageviews Analysis is provided by the Wikimedia RESTBase API, released under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL licenses. Any use of this data, including screenshots, is bound by these licenses, and you irrevocably agree to release modifications or additions under these licenses.
