The discussion is about who's responsible for support of said software.
There's no obligation through the GNU GPL that support is required if
money changes hands, however the point of the discussion is who's
responsible for support of said software in a situation where the
software produced is broken and supported.
Red Hat sells support. The act of taking binaries and actively and
intentionally redistributing them is a support service.
Well that is open to debate. If I just download Redhat, they make no money
off me. Do they still have to fix my software then ? Are they responsible ?
