This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The typical answer is "just flag for a diamond moderator, they can move from anywhere to anywhere," but what question are you thinking of? I know some crazy off-topic gets posted sometimes, but even so, SO -> Patents seems like a weird migration to me. – Pops Sep 30 '12 at 8:01

Licenses is not the topic for Patents. – kiamlaluno Sep 30 '12 at 8:03
If not Patents, where the question possibly can be answered? – Serg Sep 30 '12 at 8:04
I don't recall there are sites about licenses. Programmers has some questions about software licenses, but I cannot tell you they consider those questions still on-topic. – kiamlaluno Sep 30 '12 at 8:08

You can flag for moderation attention, and ask for a question to be migrated.
Bear in mind that old questions are not probably migrated; in the same way, questions that are not good are not migrated (e.g. subjective questions).

For Ask Patents, remember the topic is:

  • Solicit help finding prior art that might apply to a patent or application
  • Get answers to hard questions about specific patents
  • Ask questions about the US patent system or process
