Method of providing compensation to internet content providers
WO 2003081382 A3
Abstract
The method is for charging users of web sites a fee for gaining access to content of the web sites (51a-51h) and compensating content providers of the web sites. An Internet service provider (18, 20, 22) enrolls a user (12, 14, 16) with an agreement (24) to provide access to the Internet. The user pays a subscription fee (26) to the service provider that forms an agreement (28) with a compensation agency (30). The service provider sends an agency payment (32, 38, 40) to the agency that has an agreement (42) formed with a content provider (44a-44h) of the website. The agency sends a compensation payment (46a-46h) to the content provider. The subscription fee is greater than the agency payment that is greater than the compensation payment.
