IANAL and haven't reviewed all the licenses that are used by software on
the Ubuntu CD, but nothing in the main licenses (GPL, BSD, X) prevents
you from charging money for the binaries as such, if you can find
someone who pays for something he can download for free. (The GPL does
prevent you from charging fees for the sources, except for shipping and
handling, but they are not on the CD).

That said, the OP should *definitely* contact Canonical here:
