The current FAQ is pretty generic, and doesn't go into much detail about what's off-topic.
I just reviewed the following: Movie/song database like IMDB.
I would like to flag it for closure as off-topic, but the current FAQ gives me no grounds for doing so. To fix this
:-), I will suggest that something like this is added to the FAQ:
The following are considered off-topic at Open Data SE:
- Implementing a service, database or resource duplicating a specific already existing commercial or free service, database or resource.
Edit: Now some other user has changed the question from:
Movie/song database like IMDB
Is there an open movie and/or music database available for commercial use?
I think the latter is a different question than the former, and while the former IMHO should be off-topic here, the latter is clearly on-topic.
(I think it is against the spirit of SE to radically change the meaning of someone's else question through an edit, but that's another topic.)
