You do not need any excuse for that. What you need is a reason to pay for it since the natural state of information is free. Just pretending like you do that the natural state is paying and not acknowledge that this is historically a minority opinion makes your arguments simplistic and from my viewpoint wrong.

And the reason to pay is of course to stimulate creation. And then the question becomes if paying in the way we do now is the best way to stimulate creation.
