The license is free to use for Development or Educational use on a single CPU machine. 
You must register the license as part of the download.

Here is the info from the Binary License Program FAQ:

Binary License Program. End users can receive a license to use the Solaris 9 Operating
System via Sun's Free Solaris[sm] Binary License Program. An end user must register with
Sun to receive a free license to use the Solaris 9 software on SPARC- or x86-based
computers with a capacity of 1 CPU. Certain restrictions apply.
For systems with a capacity of 2 or more CPUs, users can purchase licenses from a Sun
sales rep, Sun authorized reseller or Sun online store (US only), and should then
download the software from Sun or buy a media kit from their Sun sales rep, Sun
authorized reseller or the Sun online store (US only).
