You don't seem to understand how an academic liscence works. The MS-LA is for use in teaching and learning, the MS-PL is for open source. Since this whole thing was always just meant to be an internal research project, it is nice that they did this. It would be great if they published it under the MS-PL, but this is not exactly useless.
