Online charging helps quality

by

Charging fees for online content has been one of the most interesting debates for the last few years. The problem of how to make money through the Internet has taken publishers to consider the possibility of charging fees for their online content.

Companies that want to be profitable on the Internet currently need to atract millions of visitors because it is the only way to get good advertising contracts. However, many enterprises are anticipating a change of paradigm and rethinking their business model and planning a shift to getting money directly from the visitors, through micropayments or subscription (http://www.mediaweek.co.uk/news/944161/Online-charging-work-AOP-delegates-told/).

Charging for content would have a very positive impact on media industry because it would force the journalists and people who work producing and delivering information to make better products. When one competes against a company which distributes free information it becomes imperative to make an effort to differentiate one’s product and convince the public that it is worth paying for higher quality content.
