Please, re-read the above quoted notice.  The power of copyright law is 
universal according to the Burne Convention.  Regardless of how you cite it, 
it is still a copyright violation.  Supplying the <http://etc.etc.etc> url is 
not a violation because then the reader is reading the original, which is not 
a copyright violation.  You copied it, and that in itself IS the violation.
