Thanks, in great part, to Apache.

Eh, I dunno.
I think it has more to do with that
a) it would be impossibly hard to keep track of, especially for large sites (think YouTube, Facebook and such)
b) to my knowledge there is not, and never has been, an HTTP server that was licensed per connection.

Perhaps if MS had been earlier into the game but at the time that MS did release IIS (as a serious product) there was already a large amount of existing servers.
