The price of GPL'd IP (apart from outright transfers of copyrights) 
pooled and cross licensed by Red Hat and Novell is fixed at zero 
(pursuant to the GPL)... unless of course you believe in "negative 
price" theory raised by one defendant in Wallace's case (please 
drop me a link to negatively priced GPL'd IP, please, please). And 
setting "only the maximum price" at predatory level is also illegal 
(in the context of antitrust conspiracy under Section 1 of the 
Sherman Act).
