Licensing policy for VisiBroker

Does somebody know what is the licensing policy of VisiBroker ?
development/server/client environments ?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

look for deploy.txt in delphi directory as it should tell all you need.

From INSTALL.TXT which is referred to on the CD-Label:

Please review README.TXT once installation is complete.
  Before distributing Delphi applications, please review
  your license agreement and DEPLOY.TXT (on the Delphi CD
  or in the Delphi directory).

Under any other circumstances, you must purchase a VisiBroker
deployment license to deploy an application with CORBA

Regards Barry
In the file DEPLOY.TXT, you'll find this about Visibroker:

This product does not include deployment rights for the
VisiBroker CORBA ORB.  When deploying an application
requiring CORBA services, you must first obtain VisiBroker
Deployment licenses, available separately from INPRISE.
For more information on VisiBroker, see INPRISE's World
Wide Web site at the URL below, or contact your local
INPRISE sales office.

Going to that site, and looking around, I found this (it assumes you're buying MIDAS licenses):

VisiBroker Deployment license: A VisiBroker deployment license is normally required when you create an application that uses CORBA. As long as you are using VisiBroker exclusively as the transport for the data in an unlimited User licensed MIDAS application, you do not need to purchase a VisiBroker deployment license. If you plan to use VisiBroker independently of the MIDAS application server, you must purchase VisiBroker separately. For current pricing, contact your sales representative. For further information on VisiBroker, see the VisiBroker home page.

But, despite the claims in both places, there's not much further information on deployment licenses on the Visibroker Home page.
