GeneralIs this legally actionable? PinmemberGregory.Gadow26-Sep-13 5:07 
I am not asking for legal advice. Ok, now that everyone's butt has been covered....
 
I've gotten very curious about why some of my articles have gotten a very high amount of traffic, so I started poking around. It turns out that one of my articles[^] is referenced in U. S. Patent #8296730[^], held by Microsoft. Presumably, Microsoft would not have filed this patent if they did not expect to see some kind of commercial return on it.
 
Question 1: Does the Code Project use license permit for-profit use of the articles that people post here?
 
Question 2: Would I be entitled to any financial gain that Microsoft might see from this patent, seeing as my work is a reference to the patent? (Ignore, for the moment, the issues involved in trying to initiate a patent dispute with M$.)
 
Thoughts?
