Try with the MySQL sales team again. If you tell them you are going to
sell five or ten copies of your $50 software per year, they will
probably turn you down (for reasons everybody will understand who ever
had something to sell).

If you can make it clear (and, hopefully, give some proof) that you
are going to sell 1,000 copies or more per year, the royalties you pay
to MySQL AB would add up to $10,000 per year (assuming you pay 20 per
cent of your software price to MySQL).

This means you can still earn $40,000 after having paid the royalties.

Your case is a special case, so I'd try to have a special agreement on
that case with MySQL AB. From my experience, I can say the MySQL AB
people are open-minded enough to not expect you to pay $200 for each
copy of a software you sell at $50.

Regards,
