Very true. What’s more, this is also why most monetisation schemes won’t work in general; because news is such a crowded industry and there’s such a large incentive to distribute content for free that you’re almost never going to have something people can’t get elsewhere.

Like on the app store or in video game development, there are just so many competitors that any attempt to up prices or ‘improve’ conditions will just drive your customers elsewhere.
