I just stumbled upon a site today(http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/) that gives away free software downloads daily. Everyday they offer FREE Licensed software that you otherwise would have to buy. There are a lot of companies that offer FREE TRIAL Software but this is 100% totally free software. That means - not a trial, not a limited version - but a registered and legal version of the software will be free for their website visitors.
The catch is that the software that is offered for the day is just for that day! You have to download the software and activate on the same day for it to be free. Usually you have twenty four (24) hours to get the software available for the day. The download link will remain on the web-site for the agreed period of time, together with the review of the software product and the information about other products from the software publisher presenting the giveaway title.
The free software will be 100% functional and without limitations, accept those provided in the Terms and Conditions of the Software providers agreement.
You can subscribe to Giveaway of the Day's free newsletter to keep up with what each days giveaway will be. They also have a Ticker you can place on your website or blog so you'll always know what the current giveaway is.
From the Website:
