A majority of web users have paid for online content
This final note. The Internet has turned the phrase "you get what you pay for" on its head. But maybe that's changing.
A new survey from the Pew Internet and American Life Project finds two-thirds of adult web users in the U.S. have paid for access to video, news or software tools such as word processing and spreadsheets. About a third surveyed say they've paid for digital music. The Pew researchers say it suggests paying for online content is not a completely foreign idea.
