Following this logic, the following websites should not be free:
www.homestarrunner.com
www.askaninja.com
www.stuffonmycat.com (lolllll)
www.hlcomic.com
www.penny-arcade.com

Along with basically any other (currently) free entertainment.

Heck, why don't we pay for our TV/internet service, and then pay for each individual show we watch/website we visit! Sounds like a deal to me.
Your example of the websites is fundamentally flawed, because Garry's Mod is a one-time-fee. Null, void. Don't try cashing the logic there, because the bank won't take it!

Oh, and sure - charge for your flash cartoons. Per download. Otherwise, your model of income doesn't parallel Garry's in the least and your entire example follows suit after a Hoover vaccuum.*
