Are non-software-related questions about open licenses on-topic or off-topic?


If I use a CC-BY background music track in my video on YouTube, is it enough to give credits to the musicians in the video description or must credits be shown in the video?

https://opensource.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic doesn't seem to specify it, but the name of the SE may imply it's off-topic.

Anecdotally, questions about Open Hardware and Creative Commons licenses tend to be well-received here as well. As of now, there are about 150 upvoted questions on Creative Commons.

Your question would have been a very good fit here, and I was slightly confused why you preferred to post it on Law.SE.
