Most of the time this phrase is taken to mean `without fee due to
<software author>', not `you may not distribute if you charge a fee'.
For instance, the f2c license (/usr/doc/copyright/f2c) states:
Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software
and its documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby
granted, provided that the above copyright notice appear in all
copies and that both that the copyright notice and this
permission notice and warranty disclaimer appear in supporting
documentation, and that the names of AT&T Bell Laboratories or
Bellcore or any of their entities not be used in advertising or
publicity pertaining to distribution of the software without
specific, written prior permission.
yet f2c is not a non-free package.
