    Probably nowhere. There are places to ask specific questions about a licence, but not so much, "which license should I use?" – Servy Sep 10 '14 at 19:18
  • Then where I can ask specific question about a license or, if you can, recommend me a site, to ask "guessing" question. – rozpuszczalny Sep 10 '14 at 19:20

    There is no site where "guessing" questions would be on topic. It sounds like you don't have a specific question about a specific licence or licensing, so your question wouldn't be on topic. – Servy Sep 10 '14 at 19:21
  • There are some on Programmers.SE. – Scimonster Sep 10 '14 at 19:22

    @Scimonster A question like this wouldn't be on topic on programmers. – Servy Sep 10 '14 at 19:23
  • @Servy I posted as a comment because as I'm not an active member of the site, I don't know what goes. – Scimonster Sep 10 '14 at 19:24
  • I mean site outside StackExchange network. If you're able to recommend it here – rozpuszczalny Sep 10 '14 at 19:24

    @rozpuszczalny "I mean site outside StackExchange network" Ouch! I'm not sure if this also applying for Meta, but usually asking for off-site links is off-topic. Though some (easily to google) site like choosealicense.com might contain useful information for you (Don't forget to have a review from your companies employed lawyer though, whatever you choose). – πάντα ῥεῖ Sep 10 '14 at 19:31
  • I think that's what I'm looking for. Yep, I think too it's a bit off-topic now. Anyway, I got my answer. Thanks ! – rozpuszczalny Sep 10 '14 at 19:43

Questions about software licensing - that don't require legal expertise - are on topic on Programmers. However, questions about "the best" rarely fare well on Stack Exchange sites. We tend to favour specific and answerable questions over broad and chatty ones (for more details see: What types of questions should I avoid asking?)

The first thing you should do is browse the site's licensing questions. That should give you a fairly good idea of how specific we expect you to be. And you might even stumble upon an answer that answers your question (e.g. Choosing a licence for open source projects). If not, you should go ahead and ask. Be prepared to respond to any comments asking for clarifications.
