I don't think Corridor 7 was ever officially declared freeware. As Capstone/Intracorp went out of business, one of their former employees, programmer Les Bird, of his own accord released the source code for several Build engine games, namely William Shatner's TekWar, Witchaven I & II, and the development version of Corridor 8. This release is accompanied by the following note:
Quote:

These games were released by Capstone Software prior to them folding in 1996. As a former Capstone programmer I found these developer snapshots in my archives and by popular demand I've decided to release it to the hobbyist community in hopes that the games will be revived. I do not own the rights to these games. I do not know who owns the rights to these games. To the best of my knowledge these games are abandonware (or whatever you want to call it).

As for Corridor 7, I know about this site but it does not mention anywhere if the files came from an official source or not. The floppy version download does not include any readme or freeware license; it doesn't even contain any original installers, just a pre-installed version from that guy's PC.

Further in the same Doomworld thread another user says:

I can link you to it.

This one guy recieved the game from the creators of it, and made a whole site on his own just to give the game.

unlike the last time I posted free games, this is legal

here you are. You can get the CD and floppy version, as well as operation body count.

Correction; "this guy" as you call him, was given the source code and prototype of "Corridor 8: Galatic Wars" by Capstones former lead programmer, which was an in progress sequel to Corridor 7 when Intracorp and Capstone went bankrupt in 1996.

"this guy"'s site was also around before he was given the Corridor 8 materials.

Personally I prefer to err on the side of caution, but at any rate, since Capstone/Intracorp never released any other game of theirs for free, I find it unlikely that Corridor 7 is officially/legally freeware.
