I want to start a project, Scheme Cookbook, with a better license because an old cookbook, that is no longer available online, was licensed under LGPL, which requires the inclusion of the license with any use of the recipes.
How exactly does the license work on Stack Overflow (and other Stack Exchange sites)? I was reading the license and the terms of service (TOS), but I'm not exactly sure if I understand. The text is difficult to understand (especially since English is not my native language). From what I do understand, the license protects the case where someone wants to create a clone of Stack Overflow and the TOS says that the user can only do that for non-commercial or personal projects. Did I understand it right?
Is this a good place to ask this? Or should I ask on Law Stack Exchange?
