Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Did anyone notice that seem to be scraping/republishing SO's posts?

It seems that is ripping off the content from SO. The reason I said this is because my SO question ends up exactly at there, and it ranks higher than SO in Google search!!

Is using the SO content freely and fairly?

It looks fine. They're noting and linking the license (cc-wiki/CC-BY-SA 2.5), attributing and linking the user, and linking to the StackOverflow question page. The bottom of each page says where the content comes from.

The bottom of the page contains a copyright notice. You'd have to wonder on what, I don't see anything that's not covered by cc-wiki. – Uphill Luge Oct 19 '10 at 7:17
@Hans, it should be clearer, but they do hold copyrights on some parts, such as their logo graphic. – Matthew Flaschen Oct 19 '10 at 9:15
