The up2date demo account does not have an expiration date.
It does become 'surveyware' after 60 days, and every 60 days after that.
It hasn't bothered me much yet. I didn't know this, but if you buy a
basic subscription, they upgrade your demo account to basic service as
well, so it's like two for one.
Support for Redhat 8 is scheduled to expire in December, though.
