As originally posted, How do various factors affect the legality of streaming? started with the following request:
Note for Users Answering Questions: If you have a legal credential or are a lawyer, could you please note that in your Stack Exchange profile or in your response? The legal issues are probably at least somewhat ambiguous, so doing this would add credibility.
I think that such a request is contrary to policy here, and so I have edited the question to remove it.
Was I correct? Is such a request permissible? Should such a request be edited out of a question here on Law.SE?
