FYI, when we ran a pilot using MOO in the corporate world, our cadre of 
software and internet lawyers spent quite some time pouring over the 
information available about the core, the code, etc...  And their answer to us 
was -- we can use it.

I'm not sure whether that meant that my Firm, exclusively, could use it... or 
that anyone could use it.  So, take this with a grain of salt, I'm not sure 
what kind of agreements or legal contracts were drawn, I only know they fixed 
it so that we didn't have to worry.  As far as I know, anyone can use MOO for 
whatever purpose they choose at the current time.
