Legal issues of using COM headers (winerror.h for example) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I was wondering if anyone knows the legality of using COM headers or type definitions within the headers as a standard and making them available for other platforms as a standard or is it better to avoid this due to legal issues.

    Not sure what to say. I checked the headers and saw "(C) Microsoft. All rights reserved"


    I'm not a lawyer but my conclusion is that if MS has all those rights reserved, you should ask MS before doing anything with that intellectual property
