My US$0.02 worth, as a layman:  The most troublesome part would seem to me
to be the designation of "a company" as a party to the agreement.  I don't
know whether a non-profit organization (i.e. SPI) would qualify or not.
Other than that, it looks like a green light as far as redistribution

If in doubt, you could always just ask CMU. :-)
