In a muddled way, the "IP" is fixed at zero (since you can duplicate
it without incurred cost).  Access to a physical copy is, however,
subject to the choice of each distributor.

It is like selling compressed air: there is a lot of competition going
on in that area, even though the principal commodity is prize-fixed at
zero.
