There seems to be a lot of current drama flowing from the post Stack Exchange and Stack Overflow are moving to CC BY-SA 4.0 and related activities.

It seems like some authors who published under 3.0 are upset about the change to 4.0 (oversimplifying). It would seem to me that each of those authors has a legal case, against SE.

Have there been an formal legal proceedings started?

    We simply can't talk about litigation, even the absence thereof, or provide a forum for it.

  • Hello @TimPost, thank you for your quick response. I wanna clarify the use of the word forum here. If the effects of such litigation, or its absence, threatens or affects the future of the site, then certainly this would be a pertinent discussion to have.

  • @Rath, this has nothing to do with that. And, it's not a discussion we're going to host.
