For Issue: https://trisquel.info/en/issues/2411

This helper method simply removes the word "freeware" from the
description which is a GNU project word to avoid.  While this fixes the
specific issue in the bug I was wondering if someone could review the
copyright file
to make sure this is in fact libre software.  While it says it is
"freeware" it doesn't clearly state if it is free software and it isn't
under a normal license I recognise.  Thanks
