This is probably a stupid question but I thought about it the other day and the answer may be "no" since I've never heard anyone talk about it before. Basically, when you write a program that you intend to sell, do you have to pay royalties to the company who "owns" the language? Java may be a bad example, so say you write a program in, I don't know, C#. Do you have to pay royalties to Microsoft since they "own"(i think) the language?
