However, if what you say happens to in fact be correct
(never mind if it has been previously covered in these

I don't think there's much dispute that attribution is highly medium
specific. A URL printed in a textbook is clearly much different from a URL
encoded into a web page. The only question is whether the specifics should
focus on the rights of the author, or on maximizing ease of redistribution.
