Right....downloading it directly for yourself is free. Distributing MySQL with your own products is a different story and requires licensing. 

And Richard was pointing out that even with MySQL you are dependent upon Oracle, as they own the rights to the MySQL project.

Free ? If you mean "free as in beer", no, it is not... if you distribute MySQL with your products you have to pay for it see http://www.mysql.com/about/legal/licensing/index.html

I don't have a first-hand experience with it but MariaDB could be an alternative : https://mariadb.com/kb/en/licensing-faq/#distributing-a-proprietary-application-with-the-mariadb-mysql-server

MySQL is free, some companies may not want Oracle & Microsoft inter-dependence, thus they pay the mysql price.
