In case of Debian distro this is more serious problem because Debian
is non-commercial distro. Some people do not want to buy Storm or
Corel distros and they prefer a woody.

This is another important problem yet - licenses. 
Tax-controllers do not understand a difference between a free software
(in GNU sense) and a free PC. They assumed if some company received
a licensed software for free that it means this software has a regular
price normally. And then they treats this software as a donation.
