What will the licensing fees be for PlayReady for Silverlight? (Both for existing WMDRM-protected content and for PlayReady-protected content?)

Silverlight DRM powered by PlayReady is available through licensing of the PlayReady Server SDK. The PlayReady Server SDK is used to build both content encryption and license servers for Silverlight DRM on Windows® Server 2003 and 2008 (which must be licensed separately). The fees associated with licensing the PlayReady Server SDK are: a.) $30,000 for development of PlayReady encryption and license servers, and b.) either $30,000 for each PlayReady license server CPU deployed (There is no limit on the number of cores. The first CPU deployed is free.) or $1.00 per 1,000 licenses issued. There is no fee for deployment of PlayReady encryption servers. Content distributors who contract with an approved ASP for all PlayReady DRM services are not subject to these licenses and fees.
