You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

This is the only mention of fees in the main portion of the text.  Since
it doesn't give permission to sell, I assumed that permission doesn't
exist.  Granted, the 'fee for the physical act of transferring a copy'
gives any distributor some freedom of interpretation here.
