New Ancestry Database

Today Ancestry posted their "U.S. Veterans Cemeteries, ca.1800-2004" database in the subscription-only US Records Collection:
http://www.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=8750

The same data, with nearly identical (*) search options, is available free from the Veterans Administration website:

http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/j2ee/servlet/NGL_v1

(*) Ancestry has surname soundex, VA has surname-given-middle names "starts with".


If someone can explain how or what Ancestry has value-added to allow them to charge for access, I would be interested to know the explanation.
