Was about a year ago on the mysql web site I believe.  I read through
all the stuff they had there on the licensing.  It was important to me
as well.  When the issue first came up I had been using mysql for a few
internal applications.  After reviewing the information available I
opted for using postgresql (which was easy to transition to btw) as it
has much more liberal and clear cut licensing.  The mysql information
seemed fuzzy at best.  Technically I feel mysql and postgresql are
equivalent.  There are some slight differences in some of the setup and
admin of the two databases but nothing that is really difficult.
