There were a couple questions this week that sparked this post...
A quick search reveals others...
- Who owns raw footage?
- Fair use with copyrighted material
- What are the rights to exported video from the Apple's Keynote app?
Or pretty much anything tagged copyright
I can even remember an answer I gave myself.
It's not that there can't be useful answers to such questions. Far from it, in fact. I just wonder whether or not there should be a boiler-plate "mod post notice" or flag reason, or some such thing.
Perhaps a legal tag that had a wiki full of disclaimers?
Doing a bit of research on meta.so...
Looks like what it boils down to is: If you're a lawyer, you need a disclaimer stating that your advice does not constitute an attorney/client relationship etc... If you're not a lawyer, you don't need a disclaimer.
Seems counter-intuitive at first, but makes sense I guess.
