Getting trial software on a coverdisk

An acquaintance of mine has written a software application and would like to get a demo of it on a PC Advisor (or other magazine) cover dvd. Does anyone know the business model for this – for example, does he pay the magazine?

Thank you if you're in the know.

I would suggest that your friend sends it to the Editor with a covering letter of explanation.
Although it is very unlikely that the magazine would pay him, usually the software providers give content to the magazines as a trial/taster of their product and as an effective way to reach large numbers of users interested in software.
Hope this helps.
