One is free to go to RedHat and register or purchase what they want. They are welcome to read the associated contracts and obligations that go along with the product.

For Red Hat doesn't exist the concept of "Licensing", here exist "Subscription" and they aren't the same thing. The license is the right to use the product, ex: MS Windows Server 2012. The subscription from Red Hat brings you the access to many other things, like: technical support (two ways standard or premium), you can move your subscription to any machine that you want, upgrade or downgrade your product any time that you want (without charges), patches, bug fixes and official documentation (technical documents and guides) of any Red Hat products (RHEV, RHEL, CloudForms, JBOSS, etc)
No. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is not "Free" in the monetary sense you are talking about. You can 'evaluate' it for 30 days. But then you have to pay them to continue to use it.

You can ask Red Hat yourself, or you can read the license, or you can go to the download page, or you can head to the wikipedia article. RHEL is not "free" in the monetary sense.

If you want support, or if you want continue have access to RHN, bug fixes, updates, access to specific documentation, then you need pay a subscription (obviously in an ENTERPRISE environment) . A subscription model has a different sense of a license, god!!!, you should read again and understand the difference between them. I know how Red Hat works, because i am partner of Red Hat. If you install RHEL, you have 30 days to try with all the benefits that subscription offers you, after that, you can continue using RHEL, but of course you can't receive any update, bug fixes, support, etc.
Any Linux Distribution for an ENTERPRISE environment, need support (specially if it's a mission critical environment) , bug fixes, updates, and more important a SLA agreement, not only a forum, wiki or a howto in youtube. That is why Red Hat offers their products to ENTERPRISES.
