We should make it possible for everyone to set the price of their content as easy as possible.
If you want to share for free, just set the default to zero. However, if you come up with a goody it should be just as easy to set a price you want.
If Google can make it possible to display and bid on advertising on the scale they have set up, it would be just as easy to make every piece of content on the web valuable monetarily.
