Copyright and Programs Written And Posted On SoloLearn

If someone uses multiple lines of dialogue from a game, movie, etc. in their program, and they post it on SoloLearn, would it be considered copyright infringement? Also, do you have the rights to programs that you write and post in SoloLearn?

it would probably be considered copyright infringement. however it's highly unlikely that they'll care. it can be fair use if you make a comment on it (like a review or parody) or display it for educational purposes. even more confusing, most users will live somewhere different and the laws will apply differently. with the USA system, every code you write is owned by you. however it is a grey area (An unknown) how copyright applies to code that isn't a complete copy, but has identical code in some places. It's being determined in a Google vs Oracle (java) case where Google used java for their android os.
