2200 USD is the price of support and subscription service.



The term "Services" as used in this Agreement means, collectively, 
the Support Services provided under the purchased subscription and 
defined herein, RHN Services as defined herein, and any Learning 
Services purchased under this Agreement and defined herein. The term 
"Software" means the subscription for the family of software products 
purchased under this Agreement and defined herein, if any. 


"The GPL’s term 2(b) is without question direct evidence of a below-
cost pricing scheme. Commercial distributors of GPL licensed products
conspire to give away their assets in intellectual property and then
recoup losses by leveraging ancillary markets such as computer 
hardware sales (computer hardware obviously requires an operating 
system), software consulting fees, employee training programs and 
computer maintenance services."
