re: Do you copy and paste code from Stack Overflow? VIEW POST


You may find our article about Stack Overflow code snippets in GitHub projects interesting, which has recently been published in Springer's Empirical Software Engineering journal [1]. Beside some information about Stack Overflow's license, we report on an online survey with developers about their awareness regarding Stack Overflow's licensing and its implications (spoiler: they are often not aware of the implications). I also wrote a blog post [2] summarizing some of the results.
