Any experience with software licensing with multi-core processors

As we get into more and more multi-core processors, managing your software licenses can be a chanlenge. Nadir from our pre-sales engineering team looked in Oracle licensing for multi-core processors and filed this: "As much as I understood under (http://www.oracle.com/corporate/pricing/databaselicensing.pdf) and other sources. The deactivation of cores in the ProLiant BIOS setting will NOT help you to pay less license. Oracle is considering the max. core architecture of the x86 processors. The license has been done on this basis and not on “activated” cores  " Have any of the members of this community had similar experiences of issues with software licensing on multi-core processors?
