Curious Facts sometimes includes images from the subject item, but without any attribution; for example:

This image is published under CC BY-SA 3.0; showing it without attribution (either name of the author and license, or link to the file on Commons) is a violation of the license, as far as I understand.

@LucasWerkmeister Thanks for catching this.

I will take a look at the API that the Curious Facts project currently uses to fetch Wikimedia Commons images and see if it can grasp the license too.

You can get some attribution information from the query+imageinfo+extmetadata API, if you want to (example code), but it’s probably easier to just make the image a link to Commons.
