* The more I read about these issues, the more I encounter electronic
publishers and content brokers using the phrase "monetize your content".
This means "charge money for your content". If you were a publisher, you
might want to generate revenue from your publications. But wouldn't
you also
 want to give the impression that you were literate?

* The more I write on these issues, the more I need a good, plain English
adjective which means the opposite of "free" (as in "free of
charge"). Help
 me out here. If scholarship isn't free of charge, then

 it's ________ (no points for "inaccessible", "confined", or "unread").

To answer your question I looked up Roget and found many options but the
best IMO was "priced"

P.S. like the newsletter, but a little less "publisher bashing"??
