Since we published this matter, the developer of SurfCanister contacted us and acknowledged the wording could be seen as confusing and has since updated their website and the wording which has went from "Download FREE Beta" to "Download Trial Beta". Thanks to the team at SurfCanister for making those changes and being responsible enough to become involved in the discussion - job done
Despite various claims from this developers website of this product being "free", it would seem in fact that it's no more than a trial version.
Note the homepage claims (surfcanister.com) of "Download FREE Beta" ....
.... or hit the download button and be told further "You could download FREE beta version of SurfCanister here" .....
but then read a little further down that page and you'll see ....
Go to the Home Page. Enter your email id in 'Register New User' textbox.
Then Click on Register button.
Your account credentials and SurfCanister trial license key will be sent to registered email account
Enter your username and password to login to your account.
User can find product trial license key and download setup in it's ‘My Profile’ menu.
User could also find the product trial license key at registered email account.
This has all the hallmarks of foreign development, note the line "You could download FREE beta version of SurfCanister here", instead of better grammar such as "You can download the FREE beta version". But say it as you like, either it's free or it's not, but their own claims on their own website say it is, then contradict the claim by asking for a registration in return for a "trial" license key!.
