Internet providers sometimes complain that they don't get paid to send Google's traffic and that Google should foot the bill. They rarely get any sympathy on the subject, but my question is: aren't their subscribers supposed to pay for it? So in what sense are you "not being paid" for the things your customers are paying you to do?

PPS - If I come up with one, I'll let you know.
