This happened many times with Blender, too. They say the best strategy to deal with this is ignoring these cases. And of course let the people know that FreeCAD is available to download by free in freecadweb.org
Right. For 14.99 EUR, it would be hard to argue that their charging much more than distribution costs. Certainly not enough to make it worthwhile to litigate for the FSF. Even if it was, litigation usually isn't a profitable venture on the FOSS side...
In any case, any user that buys it and uses it would have to be pretty insulated to not realize eventually they can get it (and support) for free from here. A quick search for FreeCAD would quickly reveal that. No question it's best to just ignore.
