>From WordNet (r) 2.0 [wn]:

       adj 1: so small as to be meaningless; insignificant; "the effect
              was negligible"
       2: not worth considering; "he considered the prize too paltry
          for the lives it must cost"; "piffling efforts"; "a
          trifling matter"

I believe "negligible" includes your viewpoint.

My own question, when presented with any such cost, is on what basis
it *is* free, since the DFSG tend to not allow a copyright owner to
impose costs on users.
