Last week, when MSN launched Local Live, Bill Gates was quoted in many news sources (including this one) as saying;

“When you use a search engine, if somebody is making lot of money from advertisers they ought to share it with you,” Gates said on the business news channel NDTV Profit.

This quote is now being picked apart at a WebmasterWorld thread. Moderator, martinibuster, says, "It sound like incentivizing clicks. But he could be referring to rewarding users for registering with them, and using their various services like MSN Spaces, and hotmail etc."
