While I agree with the first quote, I don't think the entirety of OER should be like that. Simply put, contributions to the systems are experience and proof of skill similar in usage to the information that would accumulate in a students Open Learning portfolio. Then their is looking through the resources by author. So, attributing credit does have a very helpful and accepted set of uses that you find in Web 2.0 services that should be integrated into the contribution systems for the OER systems to make them more friendly to both contributors and users. Yet there are times where it doesn't matter, and it shouldn't be the responsibility of the resource user to keep track of credit. In this way the OER systems can be very helpful by giving a simple way to make quotes with all the attribution and some relevant links included. This way the quoters have an easy way to make their quotes more useful to the contributors, systems and users. So far as I understand the OER goals, the point is to make it so everybody wins. I don't see this without some credit being given. It isn't just abut the contributors. Credit, approval, endorsement and many other aspects of putting your reputation on a resource is a part of how many find and choose resources. It's the same as posting a link about a post in your blog. You are saying, "This is relevant/a good read/useful/an example of/..." That's a part of how the internet is useful, and why OER is so great. Even on Wikipedia there is credit. It's in the history tab.

Scott, as usual, sees things clearly.
