  • I believe that falls under the dev category. So I would say no. You will need to check with your local licensing rep though.

    How is this C# related?

  • Hello,

    This is not a C# question so I'm moving it to a SQL-Server forum.

  • It sounds like the database is being used for dev purposes which means no license is required. However - check with your local MS licensing rep.

  • Hello,

    The following article enumerate all fictional company names that contain the word Contoso and tells you which ones are no longer owned by Microsoft. I would say you can use you those that don’t belong to Microsoft anymore.

    Hope this helps.
