I suspect you misunderstand the terms of MySQL licensing ... The MySQL database server is available for free under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Commercial licenses are available for users who prefer not to be restricted by the terms of the GPL. Source: <http://www.mysql.com/products/index.html> 2. Free use for those who never copy, modify or distribute As long as you never distribute MySQL software (or software that forms a derivative work with MySQL software) in any way, you are free to use it for powering your application, irrespective of the license the application is under.
