I think there are two issues here...

1) People have become used to just downloading stuff off the internet for free... and frankly even at the dimensions of RP we are all enabling codependents in this ugly circle of photographer abuse.

2) The folks put in charge of finding pictures are often not given a budget. I've been there, although not in a photographic sense, but asked to go find something and not given any money to spend on it. In those cases, people will try to find something for free rather than kick it back to their bosses.
