Negotiate with those who put effort into making something useful. If
you have a product worth selling, paying something for the vector is
probably affordable. Remember, they have some incentive to reach a
"reasonable" agreement with you, too. If you don't make a profit,
neither do they. And if there are multiple possible suppliers of
usable vectors, competition drives the price down -- cuz you (and
others) bargain.
