How can we define what is good or what is wrong about software law here? This issue came from this question closed as off-topic.
The best way to explain the problem with that question would be: "What's that question could add to us, programmers on our job?". We can ask questions about software law that affects our job. That question is just about an past issue of our industry. This issue probably didn't affect the programmers of IE 10 years ago. How it could affect us? How it could be more than a trivia like?
Some good questions about software law:
Are there laws to protect us from hackers who disclose vulnerabilities prior to alerting the vendor?
What is the “default” software license?
Should software patents be legal?
Ethics, Clients, and legal repercussions.
What legal considerations do I need to have when programming?
How would you want to see software intellectual property protected?
Some of them have other problems, specially "Should software patents be legal?", but they are on-topic to me.
This is my personal opinion. What you think?
