The presence of legal tag suggests that you may ask about legal issues, but many moderators tends to close such questions as off topic because not related to code development. I think that this is a bad ambivalence.
MY OPINION ABOUT THAT
I think that legal issues are strongly related to development issues, especially for startuppers. And I think that questions tagged as "legal" should have more chance to survive.
I think that the community should be clearer about the acceptance policy for "legal" issues on Stack Overflow. Do we want questions about legal issues or not?
