Anyone know where I can buy MYSQL databases to develop websites with? For example a dictionary database.. but something official and legal with rights, also update to date and not 5 years old. Thanks.

The term "dictionary database" can mean many things, you would need to be more specific about what you have in mind.

A web search for mysql dictionary application turns up many hits, free and proprietary. Here are a few examples which might help focus your own intent.

MySQL English Dictionary

php mysql dictionary

MySQL 8.0: Data Dictionary Architecture and Design

You will have far more legal rights to use a free application than with commercial or proprietary applications.

Paying money for an "official" looking lengthy and restrictive license does not make a thing better, only expensive and restrictive.

I would suggest you search the web for something that meets your own requirements first. Then return with any specific questions you may have about your own list of candidate programs which results from the search. In general, questions about commercial products should be directed toward their vendors.

As your question is more about software products than specific programming problems I am moving this thread to the Software forum to give it better exposure.

MySQL is owned by Oracle now. You can learn about their licensing here:
https://www.mysql.com/about/legal/licensing/oem/

As astrogeek points out, a purchase receipt doesn't actually provide you any more or less protection than any other license. To that end, open source databases are everywhere:

mariaDB is the open successor to mySQL: https://mariadb.org

postgres is pretty popular: https://www.postgresql.org

mongoDB is interesting, depending on your needs: https://www.mongodb.com

...to name only three.

Do not expect it to be cheap!
