Subject: [boost] Microsoft vs The Boost License

Just to put everybody in context:
1) Microsoft had invested into Corel so that they get rid of Corel Linux
back in 2000 when I was working there:
2) Microsoft once again copied my Fornux PowerCalc after I had presented
it to them using some web interface:
With their Microsoft PowerToys:
3) And now here I am with Microsoft trying to copy the idea behind
With their "deferred_ptr heap":
So for some reason I do not trust Microsoft. And I was wondering if the
Boost license protects us from an idea behind a library we wrote.
Otherwise this makes the Boost license not very useful.
Thanks a lot for your help!
