Thought I'd seen it all until I saw this: "Free Software! *This software is absolutely free to run and use for a lifetime - only downloading requires a reasonable fee." Hmm...

    Yeah heh. It's like GPL software I believe, you can still charge for the cost of the download. I mean if it were 1.2GBs and popular sure I'd pay $5, but why not torrent it at that point and let others share your load?

    Yeah...I think you may be right about the license, and I think that the site was trying to use it as a slick marketing ploy. You had to pay $29.95 to join the site, then you could d/l the free software.

    Pretty awful, unless the membership is really worth the $30 and the software is just a bonus kind of deal that comes with it. If it is the other way around, then there is no excuse.
