In actual practice I do cite my sources for various practical reasons, which include maintainability. I admit I hadn't thought about the possible legal ramifications, and you have a good point there. It's just that I don't consider it something "mandatory" for private code. Maybe it's the "right" thing to do, and that's why I do it anyway, but I don't care whether other people do it or not. I think I might just as well release my modules as public domain, because I just do them for free because I want to and I don't care about all this license mumbo-jumbo; I guess I just went along with the common practice of releasing them "under the same terms as Perl itself"...
