My problem with this is that you are throwing in value judgements. Clouds
the issue a bit, dontcha think? Does it become a system where one only has
to pay to sample if they can afford to, and those who can't can do it for
free? Who decides who can pay and who cannot?
I still stick to the "good for the goose, good for the gander" type
thought-process, and feel that if it is right (legally and morally) in one
direction then it needs to be right in the other direction as well.
