Different Types of Copyrights
Freeware is software that has been copyrighted, however the author or the creator is giving it away for free. This means that the work is still technically owned by the creator but the creator has made it free. For example, Google Slides because anyone can use it and there is no advanced version.
Shareware is a lot like freeware, in the sense that initially it is free, however shareware is free at first but then you have to upgrade to a full version or to have and unlimited time use. A good example of this is trials for software such as Netflix, you can get a free month trial and if you still like it you can buy it for use after the trial.
