No. My understanding is they intend to keep both free accounts and paid accounts as long as they are in business, but no one knows the future.
They can't charge you anything. They don't even ask for your credit card or any billable information. It is basically like a free email signup.

I am looking forward to using the sync function. I think that I will transition from dropbox to this for auto photo uploads from my phone. I have always sync automatically backup my dropbox folder to my file server. I will just have to switch folders with way more space. Very cool!
Slightly OT but you know that instead of relying on Dropbox-style synchronization where you rely on a server as the middleman, you could just go decentralized and directly sync all of your devices? It's nowhere near as hard as it sounds, and the BitTorrent labs have actually made a client for it called bittorrent sync.
I am always a bit wary of unencrypted cloud services but I like the flexibility of the Copy service and have been using it for a while. I use Cloudfogger to encrypt sensitive files before I upload them. As it uses on the fly encryption/decryption, Windows Explorer shows the decrypted files so you don't have to make duplicate files. The only problem of using Cloudfogger with the Copy sync utility is that the utility integrates with Windows Explorer and so decrypts the files before uploading! To get round this, I have set the Copy utility so it doesn't start automatically and then I stop the Cloudfogger service before I start the sync. I then stop the Copy utility once the sync is complete and log back in to Cloudfogger. Not ideal but it does the trick.
But if you files are not sensitive, Copy is great just as it is.
As I've already joined Copy, I can't use the referral link of the previous posters but I'll try to "earn my supper" by answering any questions about my experience of it. So if any kind soul wants to use my referral link, it is:
