Are general licensing questions wanted / allowed on Graphicdesign.SE?
I don't mean specific copyright or legal issues which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but broad generic questions like:
How do graphic designers nowadays deal with the question of signing away usage rights to the client? What is the norm?
I used a stock image from a royalty-free web site. Now somebody claims to be the author of the image. What do I do?
How can I protect against third-party claims when using free stock images?
What do I have to be aware of when buying a font for a client? What can I generally do or not do with the font? (The answer to this one is "read the license agreement", but I still think it would be a good question to have.)
I think these would be great things to talk about - always with the "I am not a lawyer" disclaimer at hand, of course - and it would be very interesting to hear how such issues are dealt with in the industry.
If there's related discussion already that I overlooked while searching, I apologize. In that case, please point me there.
