Interesting. I read this (from the subscription agreement that you
cite):

> The term "Services" as used in this Agreement means, collectively, the
> Support Services provided under the purchased subscription and defined
> herein, RHN Services as defined herein, and any Learning Services
> purchased under this Agreement and defined herein. [ from I. A.,
> Subscription Agreement ]

> "Support Services" means the support services provided with the

> II. A. 1., Subscription Agreement ]

> The Support Services purchased by Customer are intended for use only
> for the benefit of the Customer and only for the Installed Systems
> with subscriptions. Customer may not use one subscription for Services
> for more than one Installed System. [ From II. A. 2.2., Subscription
> Agreement ]

... as saying that a licensee can only use RedHat's *services* for
licensed systems -- but the definition of their services don't include
the software itself. That is, I would expect a licensee would only be
allowed to directly query RHN from a licensed system, and would only be
entitled to support services for a licensed system. I would expect,
though, that once packages have been downloaded from RHN, the license
on those *packages* would be GPL.

I don't see how they could claim that the method in which you download
the package could change the license on the package itself. Of course,
I'm not a lawyer.
