The included license says:

distribute an unlimited number of copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT;
provided that each copy shall be a true and complete copy, including
all copyright and trademark notices, and shall be accompanied by
a copy of this EULA.  Copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may not be
distributed for profit either on a standalone basis or included as
part of your own product.
