Not at all. The website says:

==================================================================
We are thinking of releasing the Linux version Rekall under a duel 
licensing scheme. There would be a free for non-commercial use GPL 
version and the normal commercial version.

The GPL would not include any kind of support whatsoever, therefore 
you would need to take out a support subscription.
The GPL version would be free for non-commercial use.

The commerical version would include a basic level support 
subscription valid for 12 months and you would be allowed to use 
Rekall commerically. 
=================================================================

There's nothing innacurate or contradictory in that statement. After 
all, the GPL *is* "free for non-commercial use"; it just happens to 
be free for commerical use as well -- and the website doesn't say 
that it isn't, it just omits to mention that it is.
