One thing I see is this:
The following uses of .nbp Files are prohibited:
Selling the file or including the file in a commercial service.
Distributing the file under a cost-recovery scheme (via interdepartmental
billing) within an organization.
So, I can't sell my .nbp file. I did not know this. But I am not sure why
WRI would put this restriction. If I want to sell my .nbp, why would this
not be allowed?
You are right, lots of print. But so is the license I just clicked on for
the adobe product the PDF reader, which I never bothered to read, has lots
of print, so is that for using Java. There seem to be a license to use
anything on the net. I am sure there is a license somewhere for using google
I am not a lawyer, so I would not try to play one here, but i'd like to see
the Mathematica player be completely free to use with no restrictions.

Yes, that is what I said before, the free player should have no
