Next thing which comes in is how is the licensing done if a vendor sells his software which uses Oracle as the database. If the vendor sells his software to 20 clients in a year, would that mean that they have 20 licenses. How to know whether the vendor is using a licensed copy or not? I have access to the database and v$license was one of the virtual tables I checked.
