Silverlight application - export to pdf, excel, rtf License

We have requested to build a silverlight application to a vendor...
Two major things that may involve licensing questiosn are -
1. The silverlight application will let user export some reports to pdf, excel-spreadsheet, rtf format, will there be any licensing issues?
2. The silverlight application should let user attach an ms-outlook item such as email, calendar etc...

Will there be any licensing issues for those requirements?

thanks a lot

Silverlight controls are licensed under the MS-PL License

generating excel and rtf shudnt be a problem.. i don think u can generate pdf without using third party controls which u will need to license separately (not sure if there are any free ones out there)

no i don't think you will be having any problems in attaching mail items  if the sender don't have problems in you sharing the mail i don't think there will be any problems.
