The fact that the URIs are in full view accords with your view as URI
as sole means of attribution, but its irrelevant as far as the
Freebase terms goes. Where's the text, logo, etc that they're asking
for? Thats how the rights holder is asking to be attributed.

re: specific ODC license. I think the ODBL license does what you want.
Or PDDL with specified community norms.
