How many of us can say we correctly and fully attribute every piece of open source code we use in our projects? It's easy to forget to do this but not only is it the right thing to do, it's a legal requirement. Luckily, if you're using CocoaPods it helps you in two very important ways. First of all, no code is accepted as a CocoaPod without a valid license being attached and secondly it will generate you full attribution and license details on every build, it even uses a format which can be trivially integrated into your settings bundle.
