How to report a wrong Software Price?

by cdebel2005 / July 9, 2012 5:04 AM PDT

I'm looking for software tools on CNet for a non-lucrative organisation, so i was looking for FREE software since this organisation doesn't have 300$ to spend on a syslog tool.

I've found out that MOST of the software have a wrong price. Software publishers categorize themselves as FREE, while it's FREE TO TRY.

Anyone can tell me how we can report those companies to CNET?

I'm using CNet for 2 reasons: Because it's easy to search for software with some filtering (like pricing, relevance sorting, etc), and also because most files are "free of virus".

I think it's time to get the thing back on track... there should be a REPORT button somewhere on every software download page to help users to ask for a re-classification of a file... and maybe snap some fingers when Software Publisher keep acting like morons.

Thanks for the information

from then the review page there, the one with the green Download Now button, has a link to "Report a problem".

That's how to do it.

Use the filter options

There are many filter options to help in your search. Some of the software that's listed as free will have also have, "Trial" or "Premium" versions. I've found most all versions are clear marked in the "Price" category on the left.

For example,
Free to try (40-day trial); $29.00 to buy (Buy it now)
