- If they allow commercial reuse and derivative use, there is nothing at all problematic about requiring attribution. Jkelly 21:39, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
- Nothing is mentioned explicitely : Texts and images on the site may be used provided the source is acknowledged as the Amsterdam Municipal Department for the Preservation and Restoration of Historic Buildings and Sites (bMA), unless some other source is mentioned. Photographs are not available in higher resolutions than those found on the website. No originals can be supplied. If you use texts and images from the site, bMA would appreciate it if you would send a copy of your publication to bMA, City of Amsterdam, Keizersgracht 123, 1015 CJ Amsterdam.

- Well, it would be better if they would specify clearly what they mean be "use". But this is a statement from a government department, not some half-wit on geocities. So we can assume they know what they are talking about, and there are no further limitations.
- The requirement to mention is the source is OK, of yorse - that's required on commons anyway, and it's basically an attribution requirement. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 22:20, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
