question on player pro

I have a simple question on the new Mathematica player pro.

If person X, who has Mathematica, makes a Mathematica notebook (.nb file), 
what are then the steps needed so that person Y can run the same notebook if 
Y do not have Mathematica?

Does Y need to buy player pro to run X's notebook?

Or is it that only X needs to buy player pro, and use it to 'convert' or 
'compile' the notebook to a new file (what is the extension?) which I assume 
will contain the Mathematica kernel in it, and send that file to person Y. 
But then how will Y run it if they do not have player pro nor Mathematica? 
use the free player?

What about any licensing issue in sending playerpro files to someone else to 
run?

Thanks,
Nasser
