Trial version

https://support.oculusvr.com/hc/en-us/articles/201720763-Can-I-release-commercial-software-using-the-Unity-Pro-4-trial-license-
Q : Can I release commercial software using the Unity Pro 4 trial license?
A : No. The Unity Pro trial license is watermarked and commercial release of content created using the Unity Pro trial is not allowed under the terms of the Unity Pro EULA.

http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/publishing-free-demos-with-unity-pro-trial.232564/
Q : Publishing free demos with Unity Pro trial?
A : We're okay with you showing your Unity-Pro-Trial-built app to potential investors. You are not permitted to release the game to anyone, however. The trial is provided to allow you to make a purchasing decision. If you release the app, then you've obviously decided that Unity Pro meets your needs, in which case you should make a purchase.
