If it's true that it's just QPL with the name and legal venue changed
(and I didn't find any glaring differences on a quick readthrough), it
is probably free.
HOWEVER, I find it worrying that the legal venue is stated as
| This license is governed by the Laws of the State of Texas and any
| disputes shall be decided by mediation.
Does this mean that the user has to submit to some unspecified
"mediation" and waive his right to have a real court interpret the
license in case of trouble? If so, it doesn't seem free.
