I noticed Server Fault preemptively posted a dummy question explaining that they don't give licensing advice, as you really need to figure out licensing with the company granting the license. They use the question to close licensing questions as duplicates.

Today I saw this question about SQL Server Licensing. I was under the general impression that licensing questions aren't welcome on Stack Exchange for the reasons they aren't on SF, but then again we can give some help as well.

Should we allow questions specifically about database software licensing?

I personally think that with the limited scope of packages here that that may be permissible. I'm certainly willing to give it a shot. Often times, licensing is already tricky. However, that may prove to be anti-intentful in the future.
