I would think that more of a concern would be that this would be used
as part of general intellectual property protection.  Many sites
don't want machine processing of their content, becaue it prevents the
punter from seeing the banner adverts.

Incidentally, are banner ads part of the service, and therefore should
be accessible, or simply part of the payment?  Whilst they are 
inaccessible there is a conflict between IPR protection and accessibility,
as making the site accessible makes it easier to bypass the ads.
