A valid viewpoint. 

Another is that the results of volunteer work should be free to the 
greatest extent possible, unless it results in significant loss of 
income for AIS. The registrar does not make a penny from his work, 
and neither do the people digitizing the data. If anyone is ripped off, 
it is AIS as a whole, not the dedicated volunteers doing the work.

The information is important, and it is copyrighted by the AIS. 
The society can choose how it is to be distributed. There is 
no question about that. If we disagree, it is about which 
direction we should nudge the AIS about future availability 
of the data.

I share your wish that all users of the data be AIS members.
