Questions regarding laws or other legal regulations pertaining directly to amateur radio. Also tag your question with the relevant location. If in doubt, always seek professional legal advice.

Amateur radio is a highly legislated hobby, and not all of those regulations are always crystal-clear. This tag should be used for questions that are related to the legalities of amateur radio, whether for your home country, other countries or internationally.

Make sure to indicate within the question the location to which you want any answers to apply (using an appropriate location tag, or in the body of the question if a tag is not available). Questions about legal matters that do not specify a relevant locale are likely to be closed as not answerable without that information.

Amateur Radio Stack Exchange is not a forum for legal counsel. If in doubt, always seek professional legal advice.
