Fusion Applications - Concerns related to IP

MB Technologies makes Bindows, a toolkit which provides a windows look and feel. This was licensed by Hyperion prior to its acquisition by Oracle. There appears to be a dispute in terms of licensing agreements between Oracle and MB Technologies, as Oracle is using this technology as a part of Fusion Applications.

This indicates that parts of Fusion Applications will have a windows look and feel. It also may point to potential future issues with licensing terms with OEM's whose products have been implicitly licensed prior to being acquired by Oracle.
