You can get away with it if you provide a costly service, such as
moderating, indexing, and editing the submissions.
Note, if profit strings are attached to bionet.*, then propagation
of bionet.* groups may decline, because many Usenet sites prefer not
to subsidize the commercial efforts of others without sharing in the
profits. Biz.* is the major hierarchy with commercial newsgroups,
and it has been very slow work getting its propagation built up.
Frankly, I would prefer to see net.bio.net put together a decent job
listing service, like some other Internet archives already offer.
See _The Scientist_, 23 January 1995 issue for a listing of some of
these. You can get _The Scientist_ on ds.internic.net, by the way.
