A discussão está ficando interessante... :)



"If only sharing were really simple...

It's great to see positive recognition of Creative Commons at a high level 
in Microsoft.

The spec released is meant to making sharing (in the technical sense of data 
exchange) of calendars and contact lists really simple by building on data 
formats used to syndicate blogs. (...)"

"(...) I, for one, hope that Creative Commons does NOT adopt a policy of 
judging which specs released under CC are worthy and which are not. CC 
should not get involved in your crusade against Microsoft (I'm surprised you 
didn't refer to Microsoft as "M$"). The day that CC ceases to remain neutral 
wrt specs released under CC is the day that CC loses all credibility.

BTW, this isn't the first RSS extension that Microsoft has released under 
CC, and guess what, the world didn't come to an end with the first one!!

And Microsoft has already released source for this latest exension:
