I think actually reading the Awesomium license should clear up any misunderstandings.
There are 3 license models: Free, Pro, Site.
The free model has two options: Non-Commercial and Indie. If you choose the non-commercial option, then they expect you to not attempt to make any money with that application. If you choose the Indie model, then you can make money on that application, up to $100,000. If you make more than $100,000 on that specific application, then they expect you to purchase a Pro license.
When you purchase a Pro license, you pay a one-time $2900 fee for that specific application.
Nowhere in the license overview does it say anything about paying $2900 if your company makes over $100,000, only if that specific application makes more than $100,000.
I am not trying to be pedantic, and I assume you have read the license overview, so I don't see where the confusion is coming from?
As others have said, if your company is making over $100,000 on a specific application, how does $2900 seem unreasonable to support a company which gave you the ability to make over $100,000?
