To get a legally binding answer, you go to court. To get a legal opinion,
you take the contract to a lawyer. To get Microsoft's interested and biased
opinion, you go to Microsoft. It is sure not legally binding on anyone,

? What is a "legal not technical license"? All licenses are legal
instruments. They express in relatively plain language what you are allowed
to do. Once the license is in existence, it, not the opinion of either
party, is what is important. So the first thing is to read the license and
see what it says you can do.
