Zak has been hosting an open license review recently. Hopefully good things will happen as a result. I encourage everyone to voice any concerns you have; MySQL AB seems very willing to listen and to try to resolve and/or clarify any legitimate concerns.
GPL bites again
Strictly applied, which mySQL has always done towards any commercial venture..., ANY code you write that makes use of a GPL'd package (however small) MUST be GPL'd as well and be available as open source.
