For E-Commerce, I think their main source of revenue is from the sales conversion rate. They wouldn't really be interested in these, normally, we won't even count them as content creators but a service creator. They are making money from the products they're able to sell through their platform.'

Also about surveys, I really do not see this affecting the survey industries in any way. The positive part is they can monetize their various survey results.
Also in terms on user data and privacy. The good thing here is, the system is designed not to hold user's read history either on the go or in a database, meaning Coil is designed in a way that they don't get to see what you're interested in reading. So the privacy there is not protecting your data, it's making sure your data are not stored in the first place for them to need protecting.
