Yes they are free. I wouldn't say free press release distribution sites like these are a total waste of time any more than I would say directory submission or article submission sites other than EzineArticles.com are a waste of time.
These free PR distribution sites generally have a much smaller network of lower quality sites consuming their press releases. CNN is NOT going to pick up your newsworthy PR from these sites, where they might through a paid PR distribution site like PRWeb with a MUCH larger distribution network.
So... the links you get as a result are generally much lower quality than those you might get using a paid PR distribution service... but even a low quality is better than none.
