artistic credits & sources list
To accredit is to ascribe, attribute, designate, consider as
belonging to, or to provide with credentials. In other words, to accredit is
to give credit for something done. In the context of this web site, to
accredit is to give credit to, name, and identify the artistic materials and
sources referred to in the pages of this web site.
Many different skills have gone into the creation of these sources; all
the arts are included; and many, many creative personalities have labored in
these vineyards. Included are virtually all different kinds of media,
including quotations, citations, references, photos, artwork, film clips,
animations, music, and sound bites.
Credit is given in two different ways and places:
Some artistic credits and sources are listed at Electricka's page called
Credits & Sources. There, resources that are referenced at one or
more pages of Electricka's web site are named and described. Each artist
credited with creating a resource is named and the provenance or source of
the named work is given. Links that take you to each page at this web site
where the resource is used are supplied.
These kinds of credits and sources tend to be those that require formal
credit or provenance statements in order to comply with Fair Use provisions
of copyright law. They also include important citations that are not
affected by Fair Use and some citations that appear at more than one page.

short form on the page where they occur as well as in a longer form at the

If a visitor contributes a
creative work and requests to remain anonymous, the published
material will so note.
Ownership and copyright claims for a listed work
will be cited if known.
We do our best to give full accreditation, but
it is not always feasible to do so for a variety of reasons:
The originator's identity, provenance, ownership,
or copyright for a listed work may be shrouded in obscurity or may
simply be unavailable anywhere to anyone, even if a work is extant.
If this is the case, we simply cannot provide this information.
In some cases a work's origin or provenance may
have been established elsewhere than at ETAF but, despite diligent research, ETAF
cannot uncover them. ETAF's policy in such cases is to use the work
without benefit of attribution.
ETAF and Electricka provide
origin and provenance information whenever we can reasonably uncover them,
but if we cannot uncover them after due diligence, we publish
ETAF and Electricka find repugnant the idea that art
cannot be exposed to the public and must be suppressed merely
because it cannot be identified.
At the same time, we cannot be responsible for uncovering everything about
If you know the origin or provenance of a work we
have not been able to fully credit, send us the information and we
will gladly add it to our list of credits.
