There was an article in a system administration
magazine a few years ago on how sysadmins spend
their time, and administration of licenses and
license servers was a good-sized slice of the pie.
I've been looking for it -- ring a bell for anyone?

Economics question: would sysadmin time put into
administering licenses and license servers count as
a transaction cost?
