Disclaimer: IANAL

It seems the GPL requirements are met so then there is no GPL related 
restriction. If you exercise your GPL induced rights and redistribute 
the RHN src then there is nothing wrong with Red Hat deciding to no 
longer want you as a customer. You still got to exercise your rights. 
But once you are no longer a customer and thus no longer receiving RHN 
binaries from Red Hat then Red Hat is under no obligation to share with 
you anything from RHN anymore.

It would surprise me if Red Hat would not refund the customer or let 
them ride out the term of what they have already paid for. And didn't 
the customer agree to Red Hat's terms (AUP) when they signed the contract?
