License of en.wordpress.com/tos - two different ones indicated?

  1. http://en.wordpress.com/tos/ says in the text that the license is Creative Commons Sharealike, but the license that's linked to is the Creative Commons Attribution/Share Alike license.

    Which is the actual license of this piece?

    Thanks!

  2. They say:

    (Note, we’ve decided to make the below Terms of Service available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to WordPress.com somewhere on your site. We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

    So I'd say it was a Sharealike license, and they'd appreciate attribution and a link back to their site.

    Personally, with something like this, I think attribution is classy, whether it's required by the CC license or not.

  3. Actually, all Creative Commons licenses are attribution-based by default, so its the correct license.

  4. Aha macmanx, that explains everything... I somehow never noticed that BY was not an option but was always present in CC licenses

  5. You're welcome!
