Well, its better then not releasing it ;-)

ROTOR is a .net framework done by MS for BSD, which is also under the MS-LA. Mono contributions require you saying you havn't looked at it. Same principals apply. It wouldnt be an issue if you worked on something like linux or haiku, but if you wanted to write a .net OS, reading anything in it would be quite dangerous.
