See http://www.redhat.com/licenses/

        Red Hat Enterprise Linux itself is a collective work under U.S.
        Copyright Law. Subject to the trademark use limitations set
        forth below, Red Hat grants Customer a license in this
        collective work pursuant to the GNU General Public License.

I'm not a lawyer or authorized to give you an official explanation, but
as I understand it the cost of RHEL is for the support and services.
The work Red Hat does to develop, support, update the OS costs N dollars
per system supported. But you should read the web site information
yourself (or better, get your lawyer to). Red Hat sales reps are no
doubt also used to answering this question authoritatively.
