There are some questions about how content, especially source code, on Stack Overflow is licensed and how it should be attributed (see below). There is even a Stack Overflow blog post about how to attribute republished content (Attribution Required).

Why isn't there a "cite" feature, for example next to "share" and "edit", that collects all relevant information (hyperlink to the original question, author names for every question and answer with links to profile pages, etc.)? This would make attribution as described in the blog post easier for the users.
