Hm, who is to define "nominal fee" and "freely redistributable under 
reasonable conditions" ? This sounds like a badly forgotten leftover rather 
than intentionally worded as it is, since it makes no sense to leave such 
unclear and obscure statements in a license unless you are lawyerbomb-creator 
of course. The lisensor should be contacted for clarifications and license 
text corrections, imho.
