All FreeBSD releases are freely available for download as ISO images. 
You can download them, burn them and share them with anybody you want.
The only thing you need to be aware of is the processor type. If you 
what to run 32bit OS, you need i386 ISO image / CD. If you want 64bit 
OS, you need amd64 ISO / CD.
(there are images for alpha, ia64, pc98, powerpc and sparc64 too)

FreeBSD is made under BSD license:
