"Free" domain names?

They "offer" domain names... but say they can NOT transfer any domains to you.
But you may use these names for any purpose, and keep any profit. There is no charge for this. But there are legal terms, such as "domain must be actively marketed" and "We would like a link on all pages", etc.
And what kind of names do they "offer"?,,,
To me, it is not clear whether they make you the registrant of the name, or simply transfer the use. Isn't it a way to have men of straw and circumvent the evidence of use of bad faith in case of dispute?
