Saw a link to Reddit..
This lead me to : http://arstechnica.com/author/stack-exchange/
It kind of bugged me a bit, that this can be done without even notifying the original author.
What bugs me is that here on SE I can modify my answer at anytime, but once its on arstechnica.com I loose control of it.
Don't get me wrong I really could care less if "my" content is re-posted everywhere because I maintain anonymity. So no harm can be done to my professional reputation. But many others do not...
I know that once something is published on SE, it's basically community owned, but this seems to transfer the ownership away from the community.
So the question is "What is our policy on republishing “our“ content to another site?" Who has the authority to authorize this? Can I For example create a Blog "Moron's Favorite Questions"? I know i am allowed to if they are "my" answers, but can if they are someone else?
Can I group a bunch of question on a similar topic and publish a Book and sell it for provide as a free e-book? (arstechnica.com clearly has ads on its site as well as on the specific page reprinting SE data.)
Where is the line drawn?
