Licensing Team Foundation Server 2008

Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition that you receive when you purchase a Team Edition with an MSDN Premium Subscription provides for FIVE named users and does not use the CAL model.

To support larger teams, you need to purchase a license for Standard Edition (full retail price: US$2799) and CAL licenses for each user (~US$500).

You would find it to be financially beneficial to purchase that software through Volume Licensing, which provides discounts when purchasing five or more licenses.
