The licensing Tag
Excerpt: Don't use this tag to ask for legal advice.
and its definition says:
Do not use Stack Overflow to request individualized legal advice.
I fully understand why we discourage licensing questions on SO, and why we shouldn't be in the business of offering advice on licensing issues. With that in mind:
- Why do we have the tag at all, if such questions are discouraged?
- Under what circumstances could a question tagged with licensing possibly be on-topic?
Not a duplicate because...
None of the related questions explain why we keep this tag around, or provide a satisfactory answer to how the tag can be constructively used. Specifically, Are licensing questions on- or off-topic on SO? is not an exact duplicate of this question, and does nothing to explain why we don't burninate the tag.
