CNET intros listing fees for Download.com

Well, I guess I'm going to start using VersionTracker for windows apps too now :D

CNET is to start charging software publishers for listing their apps on Download.com.

From September 30, the tech publisher will charge a fee to have software posted or updated. Software already posted on Download.com will stay there until the end of the year. But then publishers will have to pay up if they are to avoid eviction. CNET is also rolling out some enhanced pay-for-placement services, with subscriptions starting at $99 a month. And it's teamed up with a webhosting firm called MoveDigital to offer cut-price bandwidth.
