Time to revive the Legal Working Group?
We used to have a Legal Working Group, but it has not been active since 2018. Now that we have a larger community, with some amazing lawyers in it, should we revive it?
Here are some pending things it might work on:
Clarify ownership status of Social.coop IP and content
Clarify fiscal sponsorship relationship with Platform6
Identify and mitigate potential legal risks
Publicize our legal knowledge and documents for use by other co-ops
The group used to be called "Legal/Governance Working Group," but I propose it should be more narrowly focused on legal interfaces, since governance is something that the Community Working Group and Finance Working Group also work on—and governance is a shared task!

I don't really have the spoon capacity to take on another role, but i do have some questions about coop's where i need to get some informal legal advice. :D
How will the working group operate?
Also, it seems that i cannot post without voting, but the only button that i see is the accept button, so the results section will not be that accurate...
