Google and all other search engines would be in for trouble in this case too. being able to surf through a 'free' search engine it this case would turn into nothing more than window shopping. "oh that site looks nice, but I'd better see what else there is before I throw my money away". This is bad business for search engines and a headache for web optimization. It would dampen SE use plain and simple, and I'd love to see google say 'sure just dig a hatchet into our business, by all means'. messenger programs and software updating would be restricted as well?
And with a near myriad of sites to choose from, who's to say what you'd get from a package deal. Do executives really think they can choose from an endless supply of websites to determine what's best for the consumer? Even if you were to look at mainstream sites it would still overwhelm the options available to television in creating bundles and packages.
Point being somebody has to implement these restrictions and that organization is not immune to legal or political pressure. If you're in america and your service provider says your site is 'pay-per-view' you can legally attack the service provider. This would have to be a government run operation and in order to do that they'd have to act as a semi-dictatorship in order to make this work. I'm sorry, but it seems like something a bunch of hippy nerds would talk about in some random dude's backyard. I'm all for conspiracy theories, but this just doesn't seem logical for me as it is.
Analog's underwear are digital. right now they're set to inverse 1 (I think that means they're on my head).
