I don't think many of the non-official 50,000 make money. They are stuck
with the same billing, collection, subscription, etc.. issues that plague
the content providers in the US and elsewhere. I think there are some
official sites that make money, through the subscription service. The
English sites seem to be there only for presence(i.e.Disney, CNN). It's hard
for them to play "can you top this" with such limited band width.
