I'm not sure what you mean.  Can you give an example of something  
that might require a license?  In my mind (I'm not a lawyer) an  
implementation is either independent, or not.  Since Microsoft  
doesn't publish actual code for any of this an implementation is  
either pirated from unpublished code, or it's independent, isn't it?
