The title of this reminded me of a great exchange in the Discworld book about the first newspaper (The Truth?), where Vetinari is questioning de Worde about why it's called a free press. "So you give it away for free?" "No, people have to pay for it." "Ah. So, is the machine loose to move about the room?" "No, the press machine is bolted to the floor". It's funny in the original, trust me.
