Abstract

A post-payment copyright system is used to legalize copyrighted music files which a user has obtained illegally. We compare a post-payment copyright system to an online music shop by analyzing three scenarios using both qualitative business and quantitative techno-economic modeling. We analyze the privacy challenges and solutions related to the post-payment copyright system. According to our quantitative analysis, the post-payment copyright system is potentially a more profitable business than an online shop when no media replacement is required. Our qualitative analysis suggests benefits in bundling post-payment copyright system with online music shop and customer sensitivity to the marketing message. The privacy threat analysis and the list of suggested solutions show that privacy is a key factor in the system success, but it is possible to develop adequate protection for the user privacy. Our research is a continuation to the trend of studies suggesting peer-to-peer networks as a part of a viable business model for media distribution.
