https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/form.legal is only usable by employees. If you try and access it as a non-employee, it says:

"Sorry, either the product Legal does not exist or you aren't authorized to enter a bug into it."

A better error message would be:

"Unfortunately, we need to keep bugs in the Legal product restricted to employees, in order to preserve attorney-client privilege and protect confidentiality. Due to the way Bugzilla works, this means we can't let you file such a bug yourself. However, you can contact Mozilla Legal through either legal-notices@mozilla.com or trademarks@mozilla.com, as appropriate."

(The general idea of replacing the current error message with a more informative one has been signed off by Liz in an email thread.)
