YPD database

Now that Incyte has bought the YPD database from Proteome, it seems
they're about to try getting something for their purchase. 
Specifically, beginning June 1, they will charge $2000 PER PI for
continued access.  At least initially, there will be no site licenses
and no possibility to pay-per-use.  They'll bundle YPD with a number
of other databases, though only a couple will be of particular
interest to any lab.  This fee seems outrageous, particularly for
small labs or labs that only dabble with yeast.  I was wondering if
there are any attempts to organize a protest.  Alternatively, where
would you go if YPD suddenly ceased to exist, MIPS?  Thanks much.
