It doesn't matter either way. The SRPMS are covered by the GPL. The
SRPMS are available on the ftpsite. The RHN/Service you pay for is
support service and access to *binaries* of the updates. There is
nothing RH can do if you download a SRPM of a GPLed program and then put
it on other machines, built or not.
