Commercial License… What does it mean?

I was looking at the Enterprise product today for a client. The cost is $8,900/yr. What happens if a shop can afford the enterprise license one year and not the next? I understand that the enterprise additions would need to be removed from the server. However, if the merchant made customizations to the code would they then be forced to disclose those customizations since they are no longer paying the enterprise fee?

You host it on your own server, or the host of your choosing. They give you the entire source code, backed by their support. I spoke with them about this very issue. They said that they believe that the benefits of the Enterprise edition will keep you coming back year after year. The truth is though, they aren’t going to come take it away from you if you decide it isn’t worth it the second year, but you won’t get any updates to the enterprise edition.
