    I am migrating this question from a guess of the intended site based on the tags' usage counts. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Mar 27 '15 at 14:41

If there are no objections, I'll go ahead and merge the three tags into for now. If desired, we can always rename the tag later.


On a related note: If the proposed Law SE makes it into public beta and survives the initial phase, we should think about if we want to outsource our "Is it legal to … ?" questions there, since I have a strong feeling that we don't have too many lawyers or law experts here on Open Data SE. Anyhow, let's cross that bridge when we come to it.

Option 1: make a synonym of , and then just use .

Option 2: combine and into a new tag,
