The GPL does not say that the module has to be for free. However once the
module has been "distributed" to other individuals, no additional
restrictions above the GPL can be added, so if the person has  clause that
the purchasers cannot sell/pass the module onto others, that would be a
problem, otherwise, no it wouldn't.

IANAL, but that is my understanding.
