Updates to PolarView NS are FREE once you have purchased a license. If you have purchased, then you are entitled to an upgrade.

Also according to PolarCOM Free Download PolarCOM is FREEWARE;
Quote:
The term freeware generally denotes software products that may be downloaded and used at no cost, for an unlimited period of time. This is in contrast to the trial licensing model, for example, where the software may be used fully and freely, but for a limited amount of time (usually 15 to 90 days).

There is an important distinction to be made, however, depending on how the software is used and on vendor policies. Using a product at home for activities that do not generate income is deemed as personal use, whereas using it in a company or other similar scenarios is classified as commercial use. It is common practice for software vendors to make an application freeware for personal use and at the same time require a fee to be paid for commercial use. Nevertheless, there is a considerable amount of software that is freeware for both personal and commercial use.
