All microformat specifications are released into the Public Domain and  
can be used by any person or organisation without restriction.

Many commercial entities are already using microformats on a large  
scale; Yahoo (who I work for) publish a huge amount of hCard,  
hCalendar, hReview, hListing, and, err, many more.

The very purpose of microformats, to better describe the information  
we publish in pages, dictates that *everyone* is encouraged to publish  
with them.
