what licenses are needed under SPLA for a SharePoint 2010 Std installation?
Usage will be internal only for this scenario, the client will use SharePoint for it's internal employees and documents only.
SQL 2008 Web and Windows Server licenses are easy to figure out (both will be per CPU) but SharePoint is a bit tricky. Or at least I'm confused... There is no "SharePoint Server" license in SPLA, I mean there is nothing regarding the "SharePoint Server"
as a whole, there are only user CALs (Std & Ent) and the Internet Sites (Enterprise) license.
Is that right? Does that mean that if the client has only 10 employees the licensing cost is 10 user CALs for the SharePoint Server?
Thanks in advance for anyone helping me figure this out...

Hope this helps:
Licenses for Windows Server and SQL server must also be acquired under SPLA in order to use SharePoint. Can be used for Intranet or Internet scenarios
Intranet Scenarios: SharePoint is being used by employees, vendors or any party that is considered internal to the customer of the service provider
Available licenses for Intranet usage are:
SALs are priced per user
The Enterprise SAL is an additive SAL (i.e. you must acquire Standard SAL
and Enterprise SAL in order to use Enterprise features]
Licenses for Windows Server and SQL Server must also be acquired under SPLA in order to use SharePoint
Internet Scenarios: SharePoint is being used for Internet-facing sites and web publishing or web hosting scenarios
All content, information, and applications must be accessible to external users [not considered employees, contractors or agents]
External users can be anonymous or authenticated
Example: Hosting SharePoint Inc is hosting SharePoint for an insurance company’s public web site that accepts claims from its customers
Available license for Internet usage is:
SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites Enterprise Processor
Priced per processor only.
SharePoint Server for Internet Sites is not eligible to be licensed under the Unlimited Virtualization option. Instead, SharePoint For Internet Sites must be licensed based on Processors used per the SPUR definition below:
Licensing based on Processors Used. Under
this option, the total number of software licenses required for a server equals the sum of the software licenses required under (A) and (B) below. This is the only option available to you for editions other than enterprise.
Note: SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites
Standard is not currently available on SPLA.
