should we remove the tag that was created per request of this question?

I think it just opens the door to create too many different [country-law] tags that aren't that useful. I think [law] is good enough for legal questions on Pogrammers.SE since every question about legal issues more or less comes with an ask a lawyer anyway disclaimer, and legal questions while allowed aren't a primary focus of this site.

Yeah, I agree. I don't think the tag makes any sense in the long term.

We certainly don't want to encourage more general legal questions after we already reduced the scope in the FAQ from "software law" to "software licensing".

Update: I went ahead and removed the tag from the question. The tag will disappear from the site in a day or so.
