Hi, just want to say I love the "ask a lawyer" idea. Kudos!

Sometimes I've heard different things from different lawyers, especially
where the law isn't clear or hasn't been applied to a new concept (and had
time to set some precedents and such). Curious on your thoughts, and maybe
that's a question for a lawyer itself?
