Most of the answers to legal questions here are prefixed with "I'm not a lawyer, but..." I'm beginning to think that including "software law" as on-topic is way too broad, and opens the door to copyright, patent, and trademark issues that most programmers have never had to deal with. In fact, I would suspect most of us work in companies with legal departments that handle that kind of stuff with and/or for us.
There are some things that we deal with more frequently, though. These are things like ethics and specific aspects of the law such as licensing (frequently seen when you want to release a project under some conditions and need to find a license, or need to know what you can/can't do with software under a particular license).
Could we perhaps fine-tune "software law" in the FAQ to explicitly include and exclude certain topics? I know there isn't a more suitable Stack Exchange open yet, but it's just that no one here is really qualified to answer a lot of these questions in a helpful manner. And it doesn't help that the answers would also be dependent on locale as well.
