the funny facts of Oracle Licenses

The basic idea I got from Oracle public license document is what I summarized here.
1) always pay money for Oracle applications and databases
2) failover to another fixed node in your cluster is free within 10 days per calender year
3) standby need license
4) remote mirror need license
5) backup is free before it recovered to somewhere
6) your 400 users need all licensed even they are multiplexed as 20 accessing users to Oracle databases
7) your export/import/batch processing, even connected device to Oracle need license, uh?
So are your clear?
