Hard to say, but http://www.oracle.com/support/library/data-sheet/oracle-lifetime-support-policy-datasheet.pdf says:

"Extended Support lets you stay competitive, with the freedom to upgrade on your
timetable. Your technology future is assured with Oracle's Extended Support. If you take
advantage of Extended Support, it provides you with an extra three years of support for
specific Oracle releases for an additional fee. You benefit from
Major product and technology releases

Tax, legal, and regulatory updates
Upgrade scripts
Certification with most new third-party products/versions
Certification with most new Oracle products
Extended Support may not include certification with new third-party products/versions."

And then later:

Lifetime Support Policy: Coverage for Server Technologies

                                            Premier
Extended         Sustaining

Indefinite
DB 9.2         Jul 2002            Jul 2007            Jul

2013           Indefinite

So, all together now, "It Depends."

Hopefully, the lifetime it is talking about will be a long time. I know I've outlived several banks and warranty companies that had promised me lifetime things. The mistake was in thinking they meant _my_ lifetime.

Judging from google, I think they broke the internet.
