Interesting. I asked the same thing and got a quite different answer pointing to section 4 of the subscription agreement, which says (in part):
4. REPORTING AND AUDIT. If Customer wishes to increase the number of Installed System, then Customer will purchase from Red Hat additional Services for each additional Installed System. During the term of this Agreement and for one (1) year thereafter, Customer expressly grants to Red Hat the right to audit Customer's facilities and records from time to time in order to verify Customer's compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
It seems that the answer depends on the wording of the question, on who at Red Hat answers the query, or both. ;-)
Some people are taking an alternative approach by taking SRPMs and compiling the system themselves:
Could someone who already owns a new RH Enterprise Linux 3.0 package give more information whether it contains any software with a proprietary license? If yes, are they essential components to make the system work? Of course, this is a thing which may change in the future.
I am quite sure that at least distribution of the images is not allowed. They probably to include some copyrighted documentation and graphics for which redistribution is prohibited even if the software would all be Free.
