- you cannot connect to a 3rd party renderfarm (houdini now ships with renderfarm software called HQueue that I believe you can use with apprentice)
- you cannot use it for commercial purposes
- small watermark in the free version (not in $99 version)

those are the only restrictions. Houdini doesn't restrict usage of any of the dynamics like fluids like autodesk did with maya
That's really impressive for a trial version of the software.
