Monetize my Full Content RSS?

This weekend, Jason Calacanis discovered that NewsGator was putting ads along side their full content RSS feeds in NewsGator online. He says his full content feeds are for "non-commercial use ONLY" and that they "DO NOT ALLOW ADVERTISING AGAINST OUR *FULL* RSS FEEDS." Greg Reinacker, founder of NewsGator, in pure blogospheric form responded by bending over and greasing up. Jason followed up.

I've got a couple points to add. FeedDemon is commercial software and uses Jason's feeds. Ads are one form of commercialization of software. Selling a product is another. There's a lot of software that seems to be violating Jason's guidelines. Why isn't he complaining about them? Actually, he is.

He was upset that I was sending full-content Weblogsinc blog posts in Rmail and told me as much. I asked him for an OPML of Weblogsinc blog posts so that I could correct the problem. He followed up that what I was doing was not a problem. I wonder, had Greg not responded with BOGU, would Jason have backed off?

Was Calacanis upset about full feeds appearing in RMail or full feeds *with ads* appearing in RMail? If it's the former, as an RMail user I don't see any reason he should be able to stop e-mail based reading of his feeds. 
There were no ads in the Rmail that Jason was concerned with. Although, I would be interested in someday monetizing that possibility.
Thanks,

Randy
