Everything paid-for to become free?  

Posted by Dino Gane-Palmer né Ganesarajah in ,

Author of the Long Tail, Chris Anderson is proposing that everything that is free will become paid products, while everything that is paid for will become free.

While I don't quite agree with what he suggests, I can see his point: movies, music, newspapers - these are all becoming free content in the digital age.

However, I can't imagine that people will now start paying for free-to-air video and audio. Why would people move away from free to paid-for unless there is some compelling reason to start actually paying for these things?
