I have some questions about interoperability between Creative Commons licenses that aren't answered on the CC FAQ. I believe that my question falls on the simple/practical side of the line, rather than something tricky requiring actual legal advice. Is there a stack for this? (So far I've found the Law proposal, and I'm not sure if it's a good fit.)

Example question, Can I copy a CC-BY-SA 3.0 work and distribute it (unmodified) under CC-BY-SA 4.0?


http://opensource.stackexchange.com covers any freely licensed works, not just software, including questions about CC licensing. (Note: It is currently in beta and may be renamed.)


The Open Data stack (in beta as of this writing) seems to be the best fit for questions relating to data licenses (rather than software specifically)

Open Data Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for developers and researchers interested in open data.

Where open data is defined as...

Open means anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose (subject, at most, to requirements that preserve provenance and openness).

(from http://opendefinition.org)

And indeed my question already has an answer, and I have found more besides.


Programmers has a number of questions tagged creative-commons that seem to have a similar scope.

  • I believe I have found a more specific stack (open data) to post my question, but I will definitely check out the existing questions at programmers, thanks! – lofidevops Sep 16 '14 at 7:55
