I copied the following from 

Is there a verb or two missing where I wrote "[+++]" below? Also, where is

provision because it is not a complete sentence nor does it actually contain
an obligation to do anything specific with attribution notices. /Larry


Generic Attribution Provision

Redistributions of the [original code] in binary form or source code
form, must ensure that each time the resulting executable program [+++], 
a display of the same size as found in the [original code] released by
the original licensor (e.g., splash screen or banner text) of the
original licensor's attribution information, which includes:

(a) Company Name
(b) Logo (if any) and
(c) URL
