    The databases are not "protected" in any way.

    You can run with a product key an edition upgrade from Evaluation to Standard or Enterprise edition.

    the only issue you may face is that the Trial Edition has all the enterprise features. If you install a standard license, then the enterprise only features will be disabled. So if you used them, they will not work.

    The database itself is completely safe, as installing a license does not affect the data, only sql features, which are around scaling, security and fault tolerance.
