My friend says that we should charge money to put widgets in a magazine ($100). I think it's absurd.

Any comments?

If a magazine will pay me money to write an article about how to write widgets, what's the difference between that and paying for the widget itself? If they want to distribute what you've created, why shouldn't they pay you for it?

Just be careful about who owns the rights, and exactly what they're getting for their money.

I'd say that if a magazine wants to put your widgets in it, then they're pretty much giving you free advertising, and you'll probably get a lot more exposure because of it.

I have to go with the absurd side there.
