Just to clarify this, Zap2It is part of Tribune, they aren't separate
entities. Zap2It is just the brand that most consumers are familiar
with. (check out the very bottom of zap2it.com)

So yes, Tribune did take away something they were giving away for free
under the Zap2It brand. I'm not complaining, it's good data and I'm
willing to pay for it.
