   The question is: is this in accordance with GPL?

I didn't read everything in detail, but it looks like it is.

   The author of the software doesn't give the neither the software as
   binary nor the sourcecode away for free-charge, but says it's GPL!?

You are quite free to charge for free software, the GPL doesn't force
you to give it away gratis.  See
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html for example.

Infact, I wish more free software projectes would do their business
like this.
