Anybody May Legally Implement the C# and CLI Specifications

I read Luka’s post Anybody May Legally Implement the C# and CLI Specifications referring to this other post: Anybody May Legally Implement the C# and CLI Specifications

Microsoft has placed C# and CLI specifications, ECMA 334 and ECMA 335, under the Community Promise which basically protects anybody implementing them in any language and in any way from being sued by Microsoft for infringing corresponding intellectual properties or patents. This is directly related to Mono, the open source .NET implementation, whose legal status was unclear until now.

Good to read this news, few days after UgiAlt.Net IV Conference … why ?
because of Massimiliano Mantione‘s session “A lap around Mono”.
