you're asking the wrong question i believe. the right question is: is anything
patented in any of the 3 specifications which might prohibit later usage due
to royalties?

the spec itself is public domain. anyone can implement it and even modify it,
build tools distribute them on wherever you want, however you might have to
pay royalties if patents are in play. what is a different issue is if you can
call it signal, i think that's trademarked. another issue is if you can
federate with the big signal providers?

so the answer you're waiting for is: irrelevant. ;)
