In the point 4 is written :

" 4. LICENSEE may create derivative versions of the Program.  LICENSEE
hereby grants STANFORD a royalty-free license to use, copy, modify,
distribute and sublicense any such derivative works.  At the time
LICENSEE provides a copy of a derivative version of the Program to a
third party, LICENSEE shall provide STANFORD with one copy of the source
code of the derivative version at no charge to STANFORD. "

In my opinion, the license is non-free software.

Is almost equal to the license eCos Public License, version 1.1 :

" This was the old license of eCos. It is not a free software license, because 
it requires sending every published modified version to a specific initial 
developer. There are also some other words in this license whose meaning 
we're not sure of that might also be problematic. "
