I am a member of both Quora and some Stack Exchange sites. Sometimes, I see that the same question is asked in both.

In such cases, is it OK for me to copy posts from Quora to Stack Exchange or vice-versa? Would I be violating any terms of service?

    Why copy posts you can post either the Quora links or SE links,that would not violate any terms

    Ah! I thought posting external links was a bad practice. Isn't it?

    @KarthickS posting only links is bad practice. It's expected that your posts at least summarise the content of the linked posts.

All content on Stack Exchange is licensed CC-BY-SA, so you can post any content from SE on Quora as long as you provide proper attribution. The Quora ToS grants you similar rights (Quora post) (but not exactly the same).

You remain the owner of your own content (SE and Quora are licensees), so of course, you are free to do as you wish with your content.
