Markets in everything

The 33 trapped Chilean miners have moved to stop any individual from profiting at the expense of the group, drawing up a legal contract to share the proceeds from the story of their ordeal.

The group have already rejected requests for interviews and have instead made plans to jointly write a book about the days spent trapped below the Atacama Desert following the mine collapse on August 5.

We'll see if that holds up.  The full story is here and for the pointer I thank Eric Hartley.  Is it unethical to pay an individual miner for the story of the group?
