ACDA content licence  

The ACDA mission is to further sovereign Active Cyber knowledge and maturity through the significant expert experience of the ACDA members and contributors.

The ACDA distributes content through the Creative Commons license to give everyone from individual creators to large institutions a standardised way to grant the public permission to use their creative work under copyright law.

All Creative Commons licences require that users of the work attribute the creator. This is also a requirement under Australian copyright law. This means you always have to acknowledge the creator of the CC work you are using, as well as provide any relevant copyright information.

The following information is a guide to help ensure you are attributing the creator of a CC licensed work in the best possible way.

What to include when attributing an ACDA work.

The same basic principles apply to providing attribution across all CC licences. When attributing a work under a CC licence you should:

    • Credit the creator;
    • Provide the title of the work;
    • Provide the URL where the work is hosted;
    • Indicate the type of licence it is available under and provide a link to the licence at (so others can find out the licence terms); and
    • Keep intact any copyright notice associated with the work.
