Features, Office Users of Microsoft Office can now choose one of the Creative Commons licenses for work created in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Microsoft and Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works, partnered with 3sharp LLC to develop and test this new copyright licensing tool, known as the Creative Commons add-in for Microsoft Office.

So you need MS's permission as to what license you can use to distribute your intellectual property created with their tools? Well alrighty then, nice of them to let you give it away. Maybe it's just a start, first they let you give away your code and then someday maybe work their way around to giving out their own.
