In this paper, one of the most recent phenomena keeping pace with the introduction of the Internet is discussed. The free market and the free use of software is a new trend that is upsetting the thinking that has been going on for a long time. Choosing to purchase or download open source software and then restructure its functionalities according to the user’s own needs, or to participate only in a virtual embedding, means a new orientation towards economic and social relations different from those known until recently. Using a conceptual approach, the results of this research suggest that free software creates a new virtual and specific market relationship that broadens the scope of freedom given to users.
