They require keeping copyright notices intact and provide the name of
the original author, etc., which credit may be 'implemented in any
reasonable manner', etc.  Details for SA-BY 3.0 here:

However, I would hope that any work with elaborate copyright notices on
every UI screen would be regarded as noxious and widely ignored.
We've seen that sort of tactic before.
