Ok well my concerns are that the Idea it self is not protected. Currently any other company can claim rights for it. The idea is to patent the Idea to protect t from other companies claiming it as their idea.
Tell me more about these points, if you know.
Also the question is starting to arise how we will hand this project over to MySQL. My suggestion would be the following:
MySQL has two versions a community edition and a Network edition. The community edition is free of use but prohibit the users to resell it bundled with another product. The network edition allows the license taker to resell it and also the network edition includes support from MySQL.
Yes, I think the intuitive way is to go through the same way MySQL already works.
We could adopt this idea. We would provide MySQL with full rights for their community edition. If they want to include the engine into the network edition we would have to sell them the appropriate rights and an annual fee for support.
What do you think?
