Subject:On the licensing once again
View as plain text  
1)
LM> If your software is licensed under either the GPL-compatible Free Software
LM> License as defined by the Free Software Foundation or approved by OSI, then
LM> use our GPL licensed version.

2)
LM> If you distribute a proprietary application in any way, and you are not

LM> a commercial license of MySQL

To be honest i don't understand the double licensing issues at all.
Does the second part 2) applies to the developer of proprietary software
only or does it apply to its users too ?
Why a user cannot install and use MySql under GPL and then install and
use proprietary software under whatever licence he got it.
Or do you want to say that the end user can in general use MySQL under
GPL, but as soon as he tries to use it with that particular
proprietary software then he can no longer use MySQL under GPL ?
This seems to contradict the GPL license terms
