News, weather, etc... all for free?

Since there's so many Android and iPhone apps out there providing news feeds, weather info etc., do the developers really pay for the data or just grab rss feeds or something like that for free?

To me it looks like most news sites etc are for "non-commercial use only". Or is it just the case that the companies are not caring for the small fish using their data?
