Valve discuss letting modders charge for their work
This is interesting.
Doesn't sound like a good idea. It would limit access to mods and good ones will get lost in the mix. The more I think about this idea the less I like it. There will always be free mods. There is also the problem of who has rights to the IP. Can't make money on an IP you don't own. Its just not a good idea.
Mods should always be free and community based unless the maker decides to turn them into full stand alone
