as is so often the case Ted Nelson's original ideas would have been
handy here. 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).
