I have seen plenty of references to the legal disclaimers etc. for the whole Stack Exchange site being referred to https://stackoverflow.com/legal/, but all SE sites are owned and operated by Stack Exchange, Inc. not anyone called Stack Overflow, (Ltd., LLC, PLC, Inc. or otherwise).

The Stack Overflow Network is a set of related Internet sites and other applications for questions and answers (also referred to herein as the “Network”), owned and operated by Stack Exchange, Inc.

Going to https://stackexchange.com/legal/ redirects to https://stackoverflow.com/legal/, but should the Public Network Terms of Service, including Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability etc. be moved to https://stackexchange.com/legal/ and all SE legal pages e.g. https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/legal/ be redirected to https://stackexchange.com/legal/?

Not only does this centralize the legals to the right company website, but when and if the legals need editing, there is one point of call for those edits.

    See the FAQ: The company is legally named Stack Exchange, Inc. It uses the brand name Stack Overflow. – Glorfindel May 16 at 11:01

    In casual conversation, I refer to Stack Exchange when talking about the collection of sites. I only mention Stack Overflow when referencing a specific site on the network. In fact, I consider the use of Stack Overflow to refer to all sites as misleading and confusing. – Jason Bassford May 16 at 18:21
  • It's probably a matter of taste. All the given links are websites of the company. – Trilarion May 18 at 9:02
