Grid Control being free is absolutely not the same as "Oracle is free because I can download it for free, I just need to license it when I run it". There is no license required for Grid Control itself. Obviously you have to have licenses for your databases - regardless of whether or not you use Grid Control. Diagnostics Pack is a separately licensed component of your TARGET DATABASE, not of Grid Control. You have to pay for the Diag Pack license regardless of whether or not you run Grid Control. There is no additional cost to run Grid Control. If I'm wrong on this, please provide a link to some supporting evidence.

I suppose semantically that's correct, though somewhat like me claiming that Oracle is free because I can download it for free, I just need to license it when I run it. . . .
