some of the ambiguity of mySQL licensing comes in. I have a local mySQL db,
it's non-commercial, so I don't pay licensing fees. If I set up a server at
home and accessed it over the internet, it would still be non-commercial and
I still wouldn't pay mySQL licensing fees. But that is more expensive than
paying for a hosting service, so I use On-Rev. IMO On-Rev serves my content,
they are not too involved with what that content is, be it html files, zip
file or db files. To me, On-Rev is NOT a commercial DB Server, they are just
a Server, if I use the Server to place my Commercial DB, then it is for me
to pay licensing fees, not me + On-Rev to both pay fees to mySQL.

I can see that this could be difficult to police, but I assume it's no
different to me storing and distributing music/movies on a Server. Should
On-Rev pay distribution fees for movies I store on their Server which I then
download when I'm out of town for the return plane trip? If I let anyone
download the movies, then it is me who should be paying the fees.

It would be nice if you could come to some workable agreement.
