I wonder how this works, since the 'Attribution' required was a clause added at some point AFTER the initial data dumps, does this mean all content before that date can be used w/o attribution?

(note: I am not using the data at all, just curiuos).

Was it added afterwards? –  Pëkka Aug 12 '10 at 15:53

If I am not mistaken, that clause was always there. It just wasn't clarified until June of '09. –  mmyers Aug 12 '10 at 15:53

Attribution required was set before the site even started. Jeff had a blog post about it. –  Diago Aug 12 '10 at 16:07

The CC license pre-dates the data dump.
