Hello and thank you for sending your question.

After doing extensive research, I found out that the main reason that companies give out "free stuff" is to make consumers try out their product for certain amount of time (evaluation period) to make sure you get the "feel" of the product so that if you realy like the product, you can purchase it from the company This is one of the marketing strategies that companies use.

Companies put codes on the software so it will disable automatically when the certain evaluation period expires I hope this answer your question.

If you really like the program just buy yourself a copy and think of it as an investment.

Good luck,
