You're free to contact your legal department or Red Hat's
(legal redhat com).  However, section 4 of the RHEL subscription
agreement reads:

"4. REPORTING AND AUDIT. If Customer wishes to increase the number of
Installed System, then Customer will purchase from Red Hat additional
Services for each additional Installed System."

What Red Hat wants to prevent is that you have 100 identical servers, 1
subscription, and it just so happens that the system that has the
problem is always the one that has the subscription.  They end up
effectively providing support for your 100 systems but receive revenue
for only 1.
