That's not just "an argument," that's the fundamental difference. If you pay me to do work for you, I'm not giving you a gift. If I do work for you for free, then I'm giving you a gift. Completely different situation.

As for the value, why would the payment be dependent on the value of publicity? I would think an investigator would get paid based on hours spent on the task.
