Maybe that's the reason why the people that own the documents (not their
content!) want money for digitilization... And if those people want
money for the scanning, those who do I want to get this money back.

I really advocate to do the digitilization. But we, as those who want
free access, have to find a business model. Of course this might be "let
the tax payers cover the costs". It might also be "let those pay, who
want to access the copies". And if we chose the latter, we have to find
a way to make them pay.
