To my understanding the .iso is under the PUEL license. And reading from the
Licensing FAQ on virtualbox.org http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Licensing_FAQ

7. Can I redistribute the VirtualBox binaries?

No. The Personal Use and Evaluation License allows you to download the
VirtualBox binaries for personal and academic use and for evaluation, but it
does not give you the right to redistribute these binaries. So you may not put
them onto your own websites or other mirrors. We do this because we would
presently like to keep track of how many people are downloading these binaries.

The no-distribution restriction does not apply to the Open Source Edition
(OSE), as the GPL does, of course, permit redistribution of source and
binaries, provided that you adhere to the other terms and conditions of the
GPL.

And when installing the guest additions in Windows it asks for a License
agreement with the PUEL so that tells me that we can't redistribute the iso.
