"Licensing questions" under "Programming"?


Hi,

how about adding a "Licensing" sub forum to the "Programming" area of the board? When releasing programs, I think many OS programmers have questions about what users are allowed to do with their software and what not, or are scared to lock themselves out of using the software in a certain way...
Wouldn't it be nice to have a place to ask these questions or discuss/explain about the different OS/CC/Free Culture licenses of all kinds? I think it would be.

Too narrow a subject for a subforum. All we need is one thread.

Thanks for the feedback. While I don't think a single thread is sufficient for this, I also don't think there is sufficient demand for a dedicated subforum at this time. That said, all licensing questions are certainly welcome in the current forum.
