FreeBSD is free.
The CD is not free.

That simple.  Once you have purchased a CD you welcome to copy it or install
it as many times as you wish.  Spending a few dollars on a CD is one way that
many people contribute to the FreeBSD project.

Or you can download it off the Internet, if you have a fast enough connection
or enough patience.
