Over at Slashdot is the story of how Microsoft has a user license for is Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit SDK that restricts mixing that code with Open Source code, even in just using some tools in developing with the SDK. One of the licenses mentioned as software that cannot be distributed with their software is the Artistic License, along with the GPL and others.
What does this mean for Perl, if anything? Does it restrict ActiveState from writing Perl interfaces to the software?
