It sounds like you don't know Gates at all. If he just wanted to make lots of
money, buying something like a deteriorating archive of images would be a really
poor way to do it. Besides, he already has more money than he could ever spend,
so why would he want to waste any of his time making more? His main limitation
these days, as he has pointed out himself, is limited _time_, not limited money.

They would be disintegrating just as fast if he didn't own them.
