OK...what I dont get is that there are so many websites that profit from MySQL running things other than PHP (where there is an 'optional GPL Licence').

An exception has to be made for PHP because the PHP license is not GPL-compatible.


So are these companies 'distributing binaries'?

No, they're not. They're running an application and not necessarily distributing that application to anyone else.


Will they have to reveal their source?

No.


Can HTML be defined as a binary??!!

No. It's not linked to the MySQL database.


If the website has a Java applet, this is a binary, right?

It's a binary but it's not linked to the MySQL libraries so it doesn't need to be GPL.
