Zygor's guide engine is a general purpose addon that reads and interprets in-game guide text files. That's the addon. There are no additional features of the addon itself that anybody pays for. What you pay for are the text files - the guide content, same as a book. if you take the trouble to learn the simple syntax, you can write your own guides, and I have.

By way of analogy, there are several different addons that will play mp3's and other music for you while you enjoy the game. You can use them to listen to Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga while you do ICC10. That does not mean that under Blizzard's rules, Bruce and Stefani are required to give away their albums. The music is auxiliary content, and so are Zygor's guide files.
