Copyrighted software that is available free of charge on a trial basis, usually with the condition that users pay a fee for continued use and support. Shareware is a marketing method. It's based on the principle of "try before you buy".

Companies such as Microsoft, Symantec, WinZIP, Ulead and countless others are offering free trial versions of the software. They may choose to call it a demo, trial version, free trial, free download or any other term they wish. But if the user can try before they buy, this is Shareware. Shareware products are programs that 1.) have a free trial / demo, and 2.) allow you to distribute copies of the trial / demo (but not the registered product). Shareware is a marketing method.
