The economics of it are such that there is a real fine balance between cheap
and expensive. I positvely hate text on my posters. Printing on the back is
two prints and that IS expensive. My point has been and still is that it is
nice to come up with "solutions". They have to be practical in the real
world. If a proposed solution adds enough overhead, the effect will be that
it will not be accepted a solution.
Thanks for another practical example of attribution stifling reuse -
too bad if you ever wanted to print something like this:
I'd be a lot more accepting of a 'Wikipedia' and/or the Wikipedia logo
printed discretely in the bottom right corner of my poster than one or
more meaningless usernames too.
I'm surprised that nobody is saying that there is nobody saying that
each individual photo in the logo collage should be attributed.
Some countries include a simple attribution on the bottom of postage
stamps. Something that size in the bottom margin of something as large
as a poster that can probably be covered when it is framed would be
Nevertheless, omitting attribution when the poster is solely for
personal use is not normally an enforceable violation.
