Metro design via cross platform RRS feed

  • Question

  • As far as I know the Metro style is patented. Can I as a cross platform software developer create apps using Metro design principles, shapes and logic? Shall I get some kind of permission from Microsoft or can I use it freely? The app is built as platform independent and shall be available on iOS as well.
