Who is this product everybody talks about?

If you are not paying for the product, you are the product. This is a snappy rule of thumb, but it can be misleading since the opposite is not true. That is; If you are paying for the product, you may still also be the product. E.g. Netflix, Spotify etc.

When it comes time to hang the capitalists, they will sell us the rope (known quote by whom?) and even though they make a good profit from the ropes, they will also sell us the coffins (unknown addition by me). Or more suited for our time: ...even though they make a good profit from the ropes, they will still gather information regarding who is the capitalists next of kin, so that they will be able to sell them comforting products.
