licensing information and db capacity

licensing information and db capacity

i dnt know if this is the right place, i'm sorry for that.
Well, I just completed my graduation and eventually i got a proposal from a company to develop a software for database management. I have some doubts about licensing the back-end database. My doubts are:

1. If I'm using Sql Server as the backend and the .sql file placed on the server where this .sql file will be accessed by about 20 clients, will the customer (company) have to purchase a license for the sql server? If yes, how this can be done? Does the company have to purchase a license for each client and server for accessing contents of the .sql file? Actually, there will be only 1 server and abt 20 clients.

2. Does the developer need to purchase a seperate license for distributing the .sql file?

3. Also, wat is the maximum capacity of an sql database size? I'm asking this because as per my requirements, the company will be using the database at a rate of 1GB per month. So, by end of a year, it will be 12 GB.

NOTE: No Sql Server Software will be installed on client machines.

In brief, my doubt is: Do we need license for reading and writting to .mdb or .sql file contents and do we need seperate license for distributing them?

Please, somebody can help me for the licensing information and also for the database size? the database will be also used for remote access.

Thank you.
