The scope of this site is stated to include:
- Statutes or court decisions
- Legal terms and language, doctrines and theory
- Legal process and procedure
- Historical legal applications
- Dealing with legal professionals
Questions about patents seem to fit within this scope. In particular, such questions will tend to be about statutes, court decisions, and/or legal process and procedure.
Further, this meta discussion appears to include a general consensus that questions about "US patent law or the patent approval process" are certainly within the scope of this site, and accepts that, at the least, the scope of this site and patents.stackexchange.com overlap significantly.
However, a number of questions about patents on this site have been flagged for closure as off-topic because they belong on patents.stackexchange.com. Would such closures be appropriate, or can users continue to ask questions about patent law on this site?
