Yeah it’s perfectly legal to resell under the GPL. The catch is however that they MUST provide the source code, either on their website, in the distribution or through a written offer. Doesn’t matter if they so much as changed just one line in it- they have to provide it.
Site seems to be down though at the minute: ‘403 forbidden’ i’m getting. I wonder are they in trouble over this? :)
While that side did look a bit of a scam, it was legal ( I think someone mentioned somewhere that he did have a link hidden somewhere that mentioned that the source could would be available if contacted – which is all you have to do to be LGPL compliant in this case )
At some stage I think you’ll see more competing products like this using the same source code ( eg Blender customised for beginners, or for a certain software package, that people may charge for – similar to Linux Distros ).
