In fact their free market is protected by the law of usage. (Might be called something else officially. I'm too lazy to look it up.) Basically, this states that if there is a free source code on the internet - including full video games available for download - you have a right to use that source code for free, provided you AREN'T reselling it/making money off of it. (Patent and licensing laws.)

QuoteSomething people don't understand is that servers cost money to run.MesaRO costs, on average, $700 a month to run. Thats not including electric bills, website hosts and Ventrilo hosting.Its true, though, alot of the servers that whore donation items are just being greedy. But some of them actually need that money to run.
