Do I need to pay royalties for a free game for paying subscribers?
I'm going to pitch a game idea to a business owner. He has a membership site and people pay a monthly fee to access.
The game is going to be free but it will only be distributed to paying subscribers.
I need to know if he'd have to pay royalties or not because depending on that I may change my pitch.

Yes, I believe royalties would be owed in that circumstances. The rationale is that the game can only be accessed by paying a fee. Determining how much of the fee should be allocated to your game sounds like a challenge, but perhaps something that could be worked out with our Finance department.
