That does sound concerning but unless I'm mistaken, that part applies to
the *use* of the SDK, not the distribution of it.

With regards to the distribution (1.2), I have lots of questions, but
the terms of 1.2 are identical to 1.1.2 of the CUDA EULA, as you point

Perhaps the NVIDIA Team should be CCed on this? Somebody is bound to
have the background on the CUDA EULA, and that person might be able to
clear up the cuDNN EULA for us.
