IMO, whoever said that to you (if they weren't just trying to blow you off) is confusing licenses with installations. Unlike proprietary software, where 1 license = a limited number of installations (often just 1), there is no limit on the number of computers a licensee can install LGPL software on. Your company could install Wine on every computer it owns under one license.
