no.. only for people using SharePoint concurrently. However, if you have a license agreement for Office, all your cals, including SharePoint are in there. So all Office users are usually licensed.

Here's the breakdown, straight from the source:

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

You will need Standard sharepoint CALS for each internal user. Unless you are using an enterprise option then you require standard and enterprise cals.

Although you are only using this for hosting a web solution and despite some movement recently from MS on licensing models, the concept still exists that an internal user using an internal SharePoint implementation requires the server to be licensed based upon its purpose i.e. standard or enterprise features deployed on the SP system, and user/device cals for each user that will access the system. The fact that you have only deployed some web pages (was SharePoint really the right solution?) doesn't come into play.
