i never say that Tony have all permissions. i say that Tony have all permissions what he need. When a Software are Freeware, he dont need a permission.
Sure you need the permission to distribute freeware. You have to check the enduser licence contract for your specific rights. Especially the distribution via charge is mostly forbidden.
And demos are not automatically PD or freeware.
Don't confound it with free software, i.e. Open Office.
