    Oh there is. The word free has double meaning and thus we always have to explain if it is free speech or free beer. Thus sucks since the difference between is vast.

      Then again, libre and gratis are a poorly defined concepts that can mean various things and so it's hard to sum it up with a single word in a fashion that would actually mean anything useful. Namely
      libre: "with few or no restrictions" What constitutes a restriction? How much is few?
      gratis: Is it about money? Is it about having no obligation to be useful in return?
      Being more verbose is a good idea.
