You know,

Isn't "Freetz" somewhat similar to "Fritz"? And "Fritz" might mean:

>From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fritz_Hollings:

As a senator, Hollings was noted for his support for legislation in the
interests of the established media distribution industry (such as the
proposed "Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act"). His
hard-line support of various client-side computer restrictions such as
DRM and Trusted computing led the Fritz chip (a microchip that enforces
such restrictions) to be nicknamed after him.

>From http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fritz

n. Informal 
A condition in which something does not work properly: Our television is
on the fritz.
