Gratis usually refers to something small; like when you buy an order of french fries, you get a little packet of catsup or mayo gratis.

People who pay for the print edition of newspapers can access the online editions gratis.


For large things, it can imply disapproval. These children who get their education for free are "freeloaders;" they get something for nothing, putting a burden on others.
