View as plain text  
looks like the answer is no.  As soon as fee based software touches the
mysql install on the PC, the user is obligated to pay the $250.  At least I
guess it is the user who has to pay.  Because once you pay for the mysql
install, you can use as many fee based applications as you want.

Because the MySQL license does not allow you to use it free with commercial
software that requires MySQL.
If you are running commercial software that requires MySQL you must buy a
license.
