Depends on what you need to use the switch for.  It it's a basic L-2 switch, the base license/code will be fine.

no. that switch uses the Universal image, but no license is required. the feature is bound to the hardware model type and cannot be changed. for convenience, a single software image is used for all 2960s series switches, regardless of whether they are a lan base or lan lite model.

You do not need to have a software license.
