In the past few months, I tried to answer a few of the interesting questions on Stack Overflow and as is the case with many of the users, the answers did not get the response as expected. I wanted to carry these answers over to my personal blog (their refined versions with slight changes) and provide references to the original questions with my original answers in there.
I couldn't find a relevant piece in the Creative Commons (CC) documentation for it hence I wanted to get the perspective on what is the right thing to do in this case:
- Do I need to call out some specific clause in my blog post which CC wants me to?
- Do I need to give credit to the question in some specific way and if so, any ideas what that is?
- Are my own answers (and questions for that matter) protected under CC in some way or can I use these contents as freely and with as much modifications as possible without impacting/infringing any policies covered under CC?
