I really like NBusiness and I would like to use it in my commercial project to generate its data layer.
I would like to ask, does the Microsoft Permissive License (Ms-PL) mentioned on http://www.codeplex.com/NBusiness/Project/License.aspx allow that?
What requirements must my project fulfill to be able to use NBusiness generated code?

Absolutely. The main section here says this:

"...each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license to reproduce its contribution, prepare derivative works of its contribution, and distribute its contribution or any derivative works that you create."

The key there for you is "distribute its contribution", which means you can distribute any NBusiness assembly with your applications. It also says:

"If you distribute any portion of the software, you must retain all copyright, patent, trademark, and attribution notices that are present in the software."

Which just means don't remove the ©
