A question occurred to me, we will be working with people's original creative works, what can we do to ensure that content is protected? I am not familiar with the rules on copyright etc. Do we need to take this into account?
Is it not the purpose of SE sites to spread knowledge that can be used by others?
THe question makes a good point that posting here would put the idea into the public mind, if not into the public domain in the legal sense. I believe that anybody who has a brilliant new idea from which they hope to profit, would keep their powder dry by asking around the subject rather than by asking directly.
The CC licence is clearly stated on SE. Anyone preparing to post a question should use it.
