The Attribution gadget is the gadget in the footer that says "Powered By Blogger". If you have tried to remove this then you may of noticed this gadget is locked into you blog.
We can add copyright information to this gadget by editing through the Layout page in our dashboard, but by default are unable to change it's position or remove it. To Unlock and Remove it, follow the below steps:

Step 1: Edit your Template HTML

Log in to your Dashboard, go to >> Template >> Edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard and search (CTRL+ F) for the following section of code:
 <!-- outside of the include in order to lock Attribution widget -->
 <b:section class='foot' id='footer-3' showaddelement='no'>
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'/>
Pay attention to the sections highlighted in bold red and change this section so it appears like the code below:
<!-- outside of the include in order to lock Attribution widget -->
<b:section class='foot' id='footer-3' showaddelement='yes'>
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='false' title='' type='Attribution'/>
 Now save the changes you have made, by clicking on Save Template.

Now the attribution gadget is unlocked and it can be removed.

Step 2: Remove the Attribution gadget (and add an alternative if you like!)

Go to the Layout section of your dashboard and scroll down to the Attribution widget at the bottom.

Click the Edit link, and you should now see there is the option to remove the gadget (which previously did not appear as shown in the screen-shot).

You'll also notice that you can Add a Gadget to this section of the footer, and are able to add any gadget of your choice in this section of your site/blog.
