Because software licensing is explicitly mentioned in the help center. I think we should have a Meta tag for questions about this issue. Here are some questions that I think would benefit from such a tag:
- Question regarding license violation?
- Are software license questions acceptable?
- Software Law definition
What is the difference between the "mit" and "mit-license" tags?
- Would a "how to choose the best OSS license"-type question be appropriate for PSE?
- Can we put "Software Licensing Questions are off-topic" in the FAQ?
I would be happy to go ahead and edit such a tag into all of these meta questions (and others I have yet to find), but I thought I'd run it by the community first.
