No, using microformats does not imply anything about the licensing of
the information. In fact, the rel-license microformat allows you to
make it explicit when all rights are reserved. Additional licensing
restrictions you may impose apply to microformatted content just as to
content without microformats.
The microformats specifications themselves are completely free in the
public domain. That has no effect on the material published within
these HTML patterns.
