I don't have a problem with advertising as long as it's on topic but this is
the third advertisement from basekb in three months and I am getting annoyed
too.

I also wondered about the business model and I am tempted to convert the
freebase dumps to .nt or .nq and put them on S3 for free with the "requester
pays S3 fees" flag.

I don't know if enough people will pay for monthly updates but probably
much more people would pay for a reliable freebase SPARQL endpoint...
