For instance, there can be advertising pop ups appearing or the application downloaded can have limited access to its functions as full set of capabilities is provided for some extra charge. Also commercial usage can be fully or partially restricted or number of copies allowed to install can be limited. There are following types of licenses you might meet: 

  • free software - this type of license allows you to use, edit and share the content under determined conditions which are generally based on GNU General Public License coming to Windows from Linux; 
  • freeware - the programs of this type can be used for any purposes except commercial tasks without any limitation, but they are not allowed to be distributed further or changed and edited in any way; 
  • adware - these programs do not require any payment but they contain advertising pop-ups, sliders, messages or banners which appear at definite period or during the whole time while the application containing these elements is active; 
  • ad-supported - this type of applications assumes installment of additional commercial modules which can be applied even without consent of the user, generally, these objects are not connected directly to the capability of the chosen product;
