If you look through the thread, there are a bunch more offers. It ends up being $1400*3 last I saw. That's a nontrivial sum.

I can sell water out of a facet, it doesn't matter if the water is free for anyone to drink, i can still sell it to you. The same concept applies to Red Hat.

It is not so. The companies don't buy Red Hat's software, they can get the sources and compile, or what many do, install CentOS. The companies buy Red Hat's support. Or seen by another side, the buy a pack of software+support.

If they get a Red Hat DVD, or links to software on a Red Hat server, then they are buying code. Whether you want to admit it or not.
