On providing attribution

From the post titled Content Linking on the Internet – Attribution or Plagiarism?

(...) a site called Curator’s Code. The site aims to create “a system for honoring the creative and intellectual labor of information discovery.”

To do so, it provides tools and guidelines for making attribution consistent and codified. Curator’s Code offers two symbols. This one ᔥ is called Via and it indicates a link of direct discovery. This one ↬ is called Hat Tip and it is to be used if you find content in an indirect way. If, for example, you discover an interesting story through someone’s Twitter mention, you would direct link (via) the original creator of the story, but hat tip the content originator.
