My question is that if I pay them the $375k, do I get a copy of their Oracle Spatial and SDE? Sounds like a good deal to me.

Great question James, I'd like to see Orange County's response to that one.
A project I am currently on we have ran into this same issue across the country. With revenues down for many gov't agencies some see these GIS requests as a revenue stream, but if the data capture & maintenance is paid for with public dollars then isn't said data public? Furthermore, if company X is paying some sort of franchise fee to operate within the county is it out of line for them to expect access to this data? My answer is "No". What do they get for those franchise fees? The privilege of doing business there and that's it?
It'll be interesting to see where this one goes.
