There isn't really such a thing as commercial doujin though, is there? The case in Japan just seems to be that pretty much all fan-made works are properly released as physical objects. In this case, a cd might be sold for something like 800, 1000 or 1500 yen, which would just cover the cost of pressing the cd, printing the booklet and such. I think if these people were actually making money, copyright proprietors would not be turning such a blind eye as they do now and having doujin conventions would not be possible.
