but I've already bought it?
Those who want to buy music legally (based on the current payment model) may have been wrestling with the issue of having to re-purchase the same content on a different format. The same applies for many entertainment formats - the shifts from vinyl to cassette, cassette to CD, CD to MD (okay, maybe not), but certainly from VHS to DVD.
It seems a bit wrong to expect people to pay for exactly the same material on a different format.
It seems that the it's okay to charge because there's 25% more insight in the book, but to my mind, it's pretty simple. I bought the book. I don't need to get another copy of the content I've already got! I have a receipt (it was bought from Amazon), so Dear Dan Ariely (or at least your publishers) can you give me access to the new content as a PDF, please - even for a few pounds?
