IIRC, the issue of charging for the s/w was discussed in those suits (which 
weighed on the award of money damages), but yes, you can charge for GPL 
software if you follow the license terms. And the terms really aren't that 
difficult to understand, that is if you actually read them.

(who occasionally has to do a tap-dance on an employer/client to be compliant)
