Moral rights and attributions
Attribution of authorship is a legal requirement of Moral Rights in the Copyright Act and copied or reproduced works require attribution. Other Moral Rights are to not falsely attribute work, and to not use work in a derogatory manner that may harm the authors' reputation.
An attribution is information accompanying a work which acknowledges the author or artist responsible for creating the work. It includes the source or location of the work, and other details depending on use/material type/ or licence.
There are limited circumstances where the right of attribution is waived, for example in a contract or the copyright in the work expiring. When not legally required is it a good idea to include the attribution, as it is a requirement of academic integrity to note the source of content and avoid accusations of plagiarism or misrepresentation.
No particular style is defined in the Copyright Act. Minimum requirements include details to identify the author/creator, title, URL or location, and can include other details depending on the work. Also ensure you follow any directions by the author for how they would like to be attributed.
