Apologies if this is off topic here.
I'm creating a basic technical blog which will contain tutorial/code snippets/project management thoughts, whatever.
The idea is to:
- Host the raw markdown on a public Github
- Publish it to my site
- Cross publish it to Medium/Dev.to/Whatever new blogging platform crops up.
Now in terms of licensing, I was thinking using a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license.
That is - I'm happy for people share/reuse my content for their similarly free blogs, but I just don't want someone hoovering up all the content I create and creating a book out of it.
Actually, there's a bit of a gnarl there. Say I'm saying 'here's a snippet of code that does XYZ'. I don't want attribution or to prevent commercial use in someone using that snippet. I just don't want someone doing commercial reuse of the tutorial/blog post itself (eg. creating a book out of it, or using it in paid training material).
Is that something I need to worry about, even if I used an MIT license?
How does licensing working when publishing to third party publishers like Medium/Dev.to? ie. Will my license by respected if I publish to Medium/Dev.to? Do I need to include a copy of the license in the blog post?
