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

It says here that look and feel is not copyrightable: Am I allowed to make a Stack Overflow clone?

Will it still be correct to say that an SO clone "contains designs from a copyrighted source"?


The site in question used to be a StackExchange 1.0 site that eventually migrated to one of the open-source SO clones.
