The system for EVE is very smart. CCP always gets their money for each month of play time, because you don't use in-game currency to buy game time directly. Instead you can buy game time items, which are tradable in the in-game market system.So, if you have money and want in-game currency, buy game-time tokens and sell them on the market for whatever you can get for them. Last time I played, they were going for about 300 million ISK, which you can make in a week or so if you play quite a bit, or a month if you put less effort into it.If you don't have money, but do have time, you can buy the game-time tokens from those who did buy them.I think it's a brilliant system, since no in-game money is created or destroyed (only exchanced), it doesn't hurt the economy, and CCP does indeed get the same amount of income, just not 1:1 for each player.
