80 vs. several million closed source licences

There may be 80 open source licences, but, every closed source software vendor has their own license usually with onerous restrictions, plus many vendors have a different license for each product.

I am sure the Oracle DB license had a clause obliging you to provide your first born son suitably roasted and basted for Larry's thanksgiving dinner.
