Neither of those topics answers my question. They both say there are issues with licensing, yet MySQL's free license is 100% GPL
. The only reason there are two licenses is so that:
1) The free one is free, with no expressed or implied warranty.
2) The other license is to purchase warranty and support.
In my opinion there is no issue. So. If someone could answer
my question, I'd appreciate it.
MySQL is free use for those who are 100% GPL. If your application is licensed under GPL or compatible OSI license approved by MySQL AB, you are free to ship any GPL software of MySQL AB with your application ('application' means any type of software application, system, tool or utility). You do not need a separate signed agreement with MySQL AB, because the GPL license is sufficient. We do, however, recommend you contact us as there usually are good opportunities for partnership and co-marketing.
