Freeware is software that is released by the developer completely free, but the developer continues to hold the copyright. Freeware has no agreed upon definition, but, for the purposes of this site, it refers to any software where the copyright holder not only allows totally free distribution, but doesn't monetize the product in other ways, for example, by displaying advertisements or nagging the user to buy a deluxe version. "Freeware" is not a legal term or distribution license, though there are many licenses which can be described as freeware like the Creative Commons License and the Gnu Public License.
