I was wondering if I could create my own site using the software behind stackexchange and link back or retain some stackexchange branding so people know what the site is using?

    possible duplicate of Stack Exchange for in-house use, but note the deprecation of the accepted answer, the true answer is pop's refering to this blog entry about SE-2.0. In short, you can no longer buy the engine but have to propose the site on area51.stackexchange.com and let the community decide whether it deserves your support – Tobias Kienzler Nov 26 '10 at 9:29
  • @Tobias Actually I thought SE 1.0 was still available for intranets. – badp Nov 26 '10 at 11:35
  • @radp: interesting! can you find any post indicating that? to me the blog post suggested SE-1.0 will disappear with the exception of the last remaining public SE-1.0 sites that are also intended to turn SE-2.0 – Tobias Kienzler Nov 26 '10 at 11:42

  • @balpha♦: thanks, didn't notice that. So this question is a dupe of that, no? – Tobias Kienzler Nov 26 '10 at 12:09

You can't buy the code anymore. But there are some clones that are open source. Or you can write your own.
