It's the viciously bitter ex-wife's view of alimony.

They want to be paid a hideous amount of money for the time spent with 
you. Then they want to be paid for all of the time you were "dating" 
including the times between dating sessions when you were broken up, and 
finally they ransom the children in the form of royalties.

No business which will still be viable in 3-5 years would ever agree to 

I love everyone telling people to "ask their sales rep" because when you 
ask a sales rep EVERYBODY needs a license, the biggest most expensive 
license they have because the spousal unit is pricing out a new 'Cedes 
and they need the commission to pay for it.

Personally I'm morally and professionally offended at the 
commercialization/licensing of OpenSource products. It always has a bait 
& switch feel to it, especially when the commercial side keeps trying to 
shrink the scope of OpenSource usage.
