Licensing implications from downgrading from Database EE to SE2

Hi folks

I have a valid license with active support for Oracle database EE. I understand one can update, upgrade with a valid support. Can I downgrade from my existing EE license to SE2? I am not talking about packs and options or any other feature related to EE. Is it possible from licensing point of view? Thnx

    Licensing is strictly a contractual issue between you and Oracle Corp. The software knows nothing about your licensing arrangements.

    As for the software itself, you'd have to install SE2 into its own ORACLE_HOME, and migrate your database to it.
