Assume they sold unmodified Slash, with a support contract. what have we lost? people have paid for something that is available free, but taxes on the stupid are hardly new - look at lotteries; once a single copy of the modified code has been sold, that purchaser is free to fold those changes back into the main source tree if he wishes to - or not, as there is no duty on him to do so. the distinction is, Plastic couldn't stop them from doing so
As I read it, they would be trying to sell consultancy (setting up new plastic-community style sites) and support; the fact that this would involve slashcode may not matter - any suitable base code would do.
