Depends on what you're using it for, but MySQL for most intents and purposes (Websites, Web applications, internal IT) is and always will be GPL. If Oracle tried to kill it, I would gather that it would forked and picked up and maintained immediately by a strong community (and it has already been forked by Drizzle, albeit for different reasons).
