Legal matters using code etc from MS website

Hi Folks

Please review this link:

As I see it, no one should use code copied from Microsoft directly, unless you are explicitly sure it is for private or non-commercial use or a permission is specifically granted for the purpose.

And for that matter, no one can be sure if you rewrite code, not to infringe patents - as they adhere to principles. Then be sure that the principle isn't patented.

Henrik,

Was there a specific piece of code someone is using from Microsoft? I don't know if missed a message about this.
