SharePoint Server 2010 Product Licensing Details

You can use SharePoint 2010 to set up intranet, extranet, and Internet sites.  Intranet sites are licensed using a Server/CAL (Client Access License) model.  SharePoint Server 2010 is required for each running instance of the software, and CALs are required for each person or device accessing a SharePoint Server.  Extranet and Internet sites are licensed using a Server-only model—no CALs are required.  For more information on licensing models, see Licensing Details.
