While I was reading a question about open source licences for software on regular Stack Overflow, I saw it was closed because marked off topic.

Is there a Stack Exchange site for legal advice and licences involved with software development?


Currently not.

But there is a strong Area51 proposal for that kind of questions. If you participate it may be launched in the near future.

  • This is a good proposal. Is there also a more general proposal for legal advice about e.g. project contracts/freelance contracts etc? – Vincent Dec 19 '13 at 8:01

    You can search Area51 for the keywords you are interested in. – juergen d Dec 19 '13 at 8:01

    BTW there is a freelancing.stackexchange.com – juergen d Dec 19 '13 at 8:03
  • The proposal is no longer strong. It's been deleted due to inactivity. – hippietrail Apr 3 '15 at 7:39
