Exactly!!! Over a lousy $40.Solution:
Join the EAA. $40.00 per year will not break us. If you can't afford it perhaps you are participating in the wrong hobby.
Intellectual property by definition belongs to someone who experimented, researched, and produced it. Whether they deem it appropriate to disseminate it for free or charge a price for access, is up to them.
Today, there seems to be a movement to demand "free stuff". The EAA is NOT (not) a Non-Profit organization, it costs a lot to do business, money PAID by members, advertisers, etc. If they deem it necessary to charge or require membership to view intellectual property they own, or financed the making of, or purchased, I have no problem with that.
