Is this free software?

I don't see any clear declaration of the license for Pagestream on their website. The need to register to get a download link is suspicious as is a "demo" variant of the program--how many free software program distributors make you register for a copy of a program or put the effort into hobbling their program?

I must admit that if Pagestream is non-free, I don't see any reason to be interested in it. The free software community will realize how it does not respect their software freedom and they'll reject the program.

If Pagestream is non-free, why is it being promoted on a website called "Free Software Daily"?
