I want to use some sounds that are available under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, for example here:
http://soundbible.com/tags-chimes.html
The license says you must give "appropriate credit". What exactly does this mean?
Must credit given for each sound individually,like so:
The Shooting Star sound (http://soundbible.com/1744-Shooting-Star.html) is used under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License
or can it be done collectively?
Some sounds in this app are from http://soundbible.com and used under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License
