No one was asked how much they would be compensated to lose access to free information. Let's take it a step further with brand licensing and promotional products - why aren't I compensated to wear a brand-associated apparel like a "Star Wars" t-shirt, but instaed have to pay for it, or radio station hat given away free at an event? I'm advertising thses brands by wearing them.
