Holistic Software Development is described as free because it is funded privately and independently of any large corporations, tool vendors or other influences. HSD is also free in the sense that it is:
Free for people to read, reference and link to
Free for people to use to improve their teams or organizations
But HSD is not free in every sense, it is:
Not Free for people to copy, download, scrape or modify
Not Free for people to distribute
Not Free for people to become Trained or Accredited Partners
