GeneralBackups Will Cost You Extra PinprotectorAspDotNetDev1-Mar-13 12:49 
Just came across an interesting licensing requirement: http://www.ip2location.com/licensing.
 
They sell data (associating IP addresses with physical locations). Which you then store in your own database. If you backup your database, you must purchase an extra license. If you mirror your server, you must purchase yet another license. If you do database sharding for your databases in the cloud, each instance requires its own license. WTF | :WTF:
 
This is the worst licensing strategy I've seen in a while.
