I don't get that either. Adobe has been relatively open with licensing standards to third parties and I get the impression that the licensing exends to both client and server side aspects for ADEPT. Of course there is still some risk to vendors and consumers using this approach (in contrast to a completely open standard), but it seems far less perilous to The Vendor and consumers than it is in Amazon's case.
