BIND is supported by the Internet Software Consortium, and
although it is free for use and redistribution and incorporation into
vendor products and export and anything else you can think of, it
costs money to produce.  That money comes from ISPs, hardware and
software vendors, companies who make extensive use of the software,
and generally kind hearted folk such as yourself.
