SharePoint and SQL Licensing - wsspectacular - SharePoint Blogs / SharePoint University: "Every time I think I have a handle on licensing, I turn out to be wrong. A co-worker brought this to my attention the other day. It appears that for every licensed SharePoint user who accesses a SharePoint site, an additional SQL Server CAL must also be purchased. This nearly doubles the cost of deploying SharePoint on any significant scale.
I didn't want to believe this, because my assumption had been that since the SharePoint service account accesses data on behalf of the user, a SQL license was only required for one SQL user.
But this is not the case." ....
