the data.  Hopefully you can redistribute as you please and then the $5 year
thing would be completely feasible.  I think you would have to remember that
the servers and bandwidth to redistribute would have to be maintained and
paid for also.  You might have to pay at least one person's salary yearly as
well.  So you are probably looking at something much higher then $5 a year.

Hopefully Isaac or whomever they talked to can work something out.  I'll
wait in the shadows to see what the developer's solution is.
