Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Some software comes in two versions: with ads, and without. It costs more to buy the “without” version but you don’t have to look at advertising.
“To Provide Recommendations and Deliver Relevant Advertising and Marketing.”
“We may also use information about you and/or your use of the Services or other services we provide to determine which movies or television shows to recommend to you and to send you promotional communications for the Services and other products and services we think may be of interest to you. We may also use this information to help third-party advertisers and programmers deliver more relevant advertising.”

You’re starting to see some of that in, say, the cell phone market.
Of course, cell phones don’t operate as a government-sanctioned cartel…
