MySQL is GPLed.
The commercial licence is to get a copy under a different (non-GPL)
licence, which is primarily to escape the redistribution term of the
GPL, the question is does this term apply to their use of the software.
Commercial in this sense is the name of the licence, not to the use
you put the software. RMS no doubt would have called the other
licence a "proprietary licence" for clarity.
Postgresql is a BSD licence which makes proprietary software
development on top of it easier. Which is why Bruce P was prefering
it over MySQL in the UserLinux whitepaper.
