Obviously, it's you who didn't get it the first time. I think he means that the more people having the info, the easier it is that someone shares it, thus you loose "potential clients". That's how information gets devalued, because it can be got for free instead of from you.
Also obviously, the information which suffers from this issue is information that is SOLD from the beginning. If you are giving it away from the start (i.e. Free software), it already has NO ECONOMIC VALUE, so it won't loose any value.
