    I think that license applies to servers and the number of "clients" that can use it. So it means you get to install it on one machine (server) and an unlimited number of client machines can use its services i.e. email, wiki, remote storage/user profiles, etc.

    The clients need their own individual license.

    I have the same understanding as lamski. This is like Windows Server, which you install on a server PC, then you get a specific number of CALs (client access licenses) which define how many clients can connect to it. The main difference is that Snow Leopard Server does not require any CALs, hence the number of clients that can use the server on which it is installed is unlimited.
