This is unclear.  "but must otherwise" can be read to apply only to
rich media that are 5+ collaborations and for which a reuser chooses
not to use the above "same fashion" author list.  But I assume
"attributed in the manner specified by the uploader" ought to apply
both in the 5+ cases where a "same fashion" list is not used and in
all cases with rich media made by 4 or fewer people.
