Well it seems the is nothing like that:

As you can see, it's as easy as accessing the URL to download the playerglobal.

The last time I talked with Adobe Legal, the distribution agreement is not enough.  Folks
must be made aware of the terms and conditions before downloading.  So, while Sonatype had
the rights to allow folks to download copies of Adobe software from Sonatype servers, someday,
if Adobe Legal ever did a review, they would have been required to have some sort of way of
ensuring that folks understood the licensing before allowing the download.

Does Sonatype have any such facility for doing that? Registered users with logins?
