More than 76% of the people who downloaded Stephen King's "The Plant Part I"
actually paid for it. He made no effort to enforce the payment of the
book - he just promised he'd keep writing installments as long as enough
people paid for it. Well, apparently they have.

I think it's a great example of profiting from "free" digital information.
