The company was bought out by Hewlett Packard.  Here are the only relevant links left of the software --

the product names are changed, you are probably now looking for test director.

Hi,

There are a lot of open source test trackers for practice.

For example : PEST ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/pest/ )
PEST is a bug tracking system written especially for a web enviroment. It supports good testing and bug tracking processes, as well as notification.

Also you get lots of other tools from sourceforge.

Ofcourse,
Industry is using Qualiy center/Test director (HP) and Test tracker ( Sapian) etc...

For practice always go for open source tools.
You find more bugs in software and learn a lot :)

Indeed Mercury is bought by HP. If I'm correct TestDirector didn't replaced Quality centre.
for some information you might take a look at: (besides of the links mentioned above)
http://us.mercurybtonews.com/e_article000562157.cfm?x=b11,0,w

You  also might check here. Register as new user, goto software section and check for trial software.

to the actual download centre you can go here:
https://h10078.www1.hp.com/cda/hpdc/display/main/register.jsp?TYPE=33554433&REALMOID=06-00060790-bec3-16ef-9bed-a14d91447abd&GUID=1&SMAUTHREASON=0&METHOD=GET&SMAGENTNAME=$SM$2Cq3HoFq8XtwZhO79hEXbjYx2lTNB4tj4RuxdLVG%2bxxniuwPsc6o3JIRR6zMUadd&TARGET=$SM$HTTPS%3a%2f%2fh10078%2ewww1%2ehp%2ecom%2fcda%2fhpdc%2fdisplay%2fmain%2fsecure%2flicense%2ejsp%3fzn%3dbto%26cp%3d54_4012_100__

Test Director turned into Quality Center in Version 8 I believe  (QC is currently in version 10).  You can indeed download a trial version at the following URL

https://h10078.www1.hp.com/cda/hpms/display/main/hpms_content.jsp?zn=bto&cp=1-11-127-24^1131_4000_100__

look for HP Quality Center 10.0 Evaluation under the Trials heading

HP did purchase Quality Center while in version 9, but its just changed to HP Quality Center.
