But is it not the case that if someone sold your OS for any price yet downloaded it for free would infringe the copyright law? Otherwise could we negotiate a commission system were I sell the OS in the UK?

Debian is free software, anybody can reproduce CDs for users and charge

whatever they like for that convenience. Equally, any user can choose to
buy CDs from a vendor or download Debian directly - it's their choice.
Regarding partners: The project is run by volunteers;
the companies listed on the partners page are those that have provided
ongoing assistance through hardware, hosting, or some other service.
People who have given financial donations are recognised differently .
