Move the erase tool to an ArcView or ArcGIS Standard license.

Why does the Erase Tool require an ArcInfo or ArcGIS Advanced license other than it's a left over from the days of  Arc/Info Workstation??
Even a less powerful GIS like MapInfo allows users to run functions like erase without an upgraded license.

C'mon ESRI

Agreed! I've had this issue at my workplace. A fellow GIS worker wanted to do exactly what the Erase tool does, so I went to ArcToolbox and discovered that I couldn't use the tool at all, simply because the computer didn't have an ArcInfo license (like mine has). We had to fix her problem in a round-a-bout sort of way when it could have been completed in five seconds!
