Oracle licensing is based on unlimited license agreements (ULA). These are time-based, but unlimited, usage rights covering certain sub-quantities of Oracle products. At the end of your ULA period, you must contact Oracle about your use of these products, as well as a number of necessary user licenses. You will then obtain the licenses for the products covered by the ULA. No, I didn`t have you in mind about “ignorance” or “not being ignorant,” Niall. I think what you wrote (an insane play) is irresponsible alarmism, not ignorance. The mistake you keep falling into is that the license is composed of more than 2 sentences! As I have said many times, read the license as a whole and the intent of the license is obvious (no commercial use). If there is an apparent contradiction between two points of the license, interpret it according to the overall orientation and intent of the license. The other mistake you keep falling into is saying that the license says, “You can only do X,” as if X were clear, black and white and wasn`t able to continue building. But this is not the case: X is “producing a single prototype”.
However, nowhere is the process of making a prototype defined. And it is quite reasonable to say that before it is possible to build a prototype, you must first understand the product. which opens the door to learning at home. In other words, that`s not what you said above. It`s more about saying that you can only do X. But I won`t define what X includes or excludes; You cannot explicitly do Y; Z is certainly not the same as Y, so I am not expressly forbidden to do so, but it falls into the zone of X that would allow it; and would it be consistent with the general intent of the license? Yes, it is, so I can do it. It has nothing to do with what you or Hans have been taught or not, in other words. It is a question of whether what you have been taught is true in this situation. Support is provided by default for the subscription license. However, once your subscription period ends, so does your support agreement and rights to use the Oracle software.
