Is it possible to have more descriptions of some of the models
discussed, please?  Personally, I find it fascinating to see what the
current thinking in this area is.

Are there equivalent models possible for freely redistributable
content providers possible?  (See current and previous.  There
is another list elsewhere to discuss that particular case, though.)


Do you need advice about the Internet or particular net services?  Why
not talk to my employers?  See for details.
