Iang a.k.a Fajran pernah menulis isu ini di
Nah, di lisensi OTN (Oracle Technology Network) yang biasa:
We grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable limited license to use the programs only for the purpose of developing, testing, prototyping and demonstrating your application, and not for any other purpose. If you use the application you develop under this license for any internal data processing or for any commercial or production purposes, or you want to use the programs for any purpose other than as permitted under this agreement, you must obtain a production release version of the program by contacting us or an Oracle reseller to obtain the appropriate license. You acknowledge that we may not produce a production release version of the program and any development efforts undertaken by you are at your own risk. We may audit your use of the programs. Program documentation, if available, may accessed online at http://otn.oracle.com/docs.
Nah, berarti itu lisensi tersebut kan cuma buat purwarupa, demonstrasi dan pengembangan, kan?
Sementara lisensi Express berbunyi:
We grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable limited license to use the programs for: (a) purposes of developing, prototyping and running your applications for your own internal data processing operations; (b) you may also distribute the programs with your applications; (c) you may use the programs to provide third party demonstrations and training; and d) you may copy and distribute the programs to your licensees provided that each such licensee agrees to the terms of this Agreement. You are not permitted to use the programs for any purpose other than as permitted under this Agreement. Program documentation is either shipped with the programs, or documentation may accessed online at http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation.
