It might sound heretic, but here's what I see happening - we already
provide Freedom as a feature :) giving away the media for free (ie.
no-cost) is not helping us make much headway. Freedom and free-of-cost
are not getting appreciated and, we seem to be ending up with more
freeloading than we can handle. The budget is finite (and, it is
minute) so, we simply cannot go on pushing money into the game.
