Confluence Licenses

Do we need to have licenses for people (employees) that want to view information that should NOT be public, so needs to be protected, but they don't need any editing functionality?

Any account created in Confluence will count against your license. So in short, to view non public material you have to have an account.

I would suggest one shared account that does not have access to edit material. Give everyone the password and have them share. This way it only 'costs' one user license.

Hope this helps
