"Goto.com for years has offered a free service to the public to help locate popular keywords. However, Goto.com has recently pulled this service from public view and made it available only to those who setup an account with them of $50 or more. "

If it comes at a cost to the supplier, I see nothing wrong them charging for a service by making it available only to paying clients.

They will and should close unauthorized and unpaid usage of this utility.

I like to get paid for my services, and so should they.

Although I can see both sides of wanting something out there to view, I understand that when it costs a company money, it should probably be limited to those paying money for an account. Since GoTo is so often slow or overloaded, maybe that will help a bit.
