Thomson Reuters is to make its proprietary Reuters Instrument Codes available beyond its desktops and feeds for use across the trade processing lifecycle by both customers and non-customers.
As I've said here
before, Reuters just can't bring themselves to engage with Open Source. Rather than open sourcing Rics, they are "lifting restrictions".
Compare this to Bloomberg's Open Symbology announcement, which included the availability of a public website to search their instrument database on day one. Reuters provide, a link to a few PDF's and invites a call with your Reuters account executive.
