Sam Gentile points to Matt Powell pointing to a public pronouncement for 26 WS-specifications being royalty free! i was pissed off about this just a couple weeks ago when i saw that i needed to sign a license to implement the WS-Security spec. now i am happier :) kind of interesting that MTOM is on the list, but DIME and WS-Attachments is not. WS-Addressing (WSE2) is there and WS-Routing (WSE1) is not. also, where is WS-MetadataTransfer (to be used by WS-Discovery)? i 'think' WS-MetadataExchange is different? and at the very bottom: 'To inquire about obtaining a license to any of the specifications listed above send an e-mail to'. i've implemented approximately 8 of those specs ... maybe i'll email them and let you know what happens
