License this Content?

Adam Curry points to this feature on the MSNBC website. Notice how, at the bottom of that page there’s a “License this Interactive for your web site!” link that leads to this page at the Copyright Clearance Centre, which tells you that you can license the content for inclusion in your website for only $99.

Why on earth would anyone actually do this, rather than simply linking to the resource itself, as Adam did?

Copyright is dead, long live linking.
