you will have to give credit to the owner of the code you use if on sololearn and in the real world if its open source you van decide to but its good to always give credit for there effort

When in doubt, always cite your references. It's not that hard.

If this is a serious question, always consult a competent attorney that is qualified to practice in your jurisdiction. Otherwise, generally assume by default that any form of expression you encounter is copyright protected unless you have a compelling reason to believe this case is an exception. When I borrow code snippets, I look for a copyright notice and license. Developers are supposed to display these notices "prominently", so most of the time it will be close to the top or first lines of the file. Each license is different, so you'd have to read the actual wording to determine your compliance burden. A common example is code published under the MIT license. Code published under this license must also preeminent display the MIT license. Other licenses may limit your use of the code. TLDR: It's complicated. Include in your code via comment the url where you found the snippet. It doesn't hurt you and the copyright holder will be less mad than if you didn't mention anything. I hope this helps! 😊

Make it a habit to always give credit, and you can be sure you'll never have problems. 👌🏼

If you don't copy the whole code and just some snippet like Sonic said, you don't have to mention their name but you can if you want to. Also they can't claim the code ownership since you don't copy the whole thing.

Just like Mirielle🐶 and Sonic said, if you haven't copied whole code then it should be fine, but just to be on a safer side go ahead and follow the idea of giving credit to the owener of that site(like ✳AsterisK✳ said).

This is programming related Oma Falk It is not about sololearn copyright rules, it's about copyright laws out on the internet.

If you copyright a little bit, then give credit. But it's bad habits to copyright! Try to ignore copyright..

Better you try to write code by yourself. You can use modules developed by others in your programs. It is code reusability. This is appreciated. But directly copy and paste is illegal and not good for your own betterment.
