He envisaged a system of micropayments for IP so that if you view my work i earn n cents. if i view your work you earn n cents. if i quote your work same deal. at the moment ISPs pay for bandwidth and data flow, then charge this down the line to end users. so the business model is basically wholesale v. retail, but Nelson's model is essentially P2P, and of course means if your content is popular you earn more, rather than pay more (the irony online remaining that if your content is popular it costs you, which is generally the reverse of other economic systems). cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
