Just read about Valve hinting at having modders being paid for their contributions:

Thinking of how at present some of us contribute to mods monetarily via donations that we enjoy and support, particularly in Arma 3, is paying for mods such a controversial topic?

 

What do others of you think about this?

Would you pay for CUP mods say or RHS in Arma 3?

How much would you pay?

As many of these mods are also actively developed do we pay by subscription or just a one off fee?

If something goes wrong what are our rights as consumers? (British law says the product must be fit for purpose and free from defects).

Community made mods shouldn't be chargeable, if anything Steam should pay them depending on the downloads they attract, maybe ad supported like Youtube or product placement.

Steam or the game publisher?

Bohemia certainly generate revenue due to the existence of mod makers adding extra value to the Arma franchise. DayZ mod alone must have made a shit load for them and people are still buying Arma 2 OA to play it.

Well my only other idea would be sponsorship or product placement, which is permitted under current rules.
