Do I have to worry about copyright issues for code posted on StackOverflow?
A very basic doubt: the answers that are quoted on SO, do they come under any license?
Is it OK(/Legal) to copy whole/parts of code provided in answers by users?
I personally make sure to just take cue from the idea and try to re-write the solution but it might not be a case for every problem, hence the question.
My main concern is if I ask a particular question for which someone gets answer off the net and pastes it and that particular code was under some license. This can also be for ideas/solutions provided by users.
I did not find anything on FAQ or previous posts regarding this.
