More – A Practical Way To License Content Online

  • July 8, 2009

Ozmo.comWe can define Ozmo as a web-based service that is geared towards those who create original content, and wish to have it licensed for commercial use online. A license can be created in a direct way – the work must be identified, and the price must be set.

When the license is purchased, the artist is notified. This way, marketing firms and advertising agencies can have access to what is arguably the biggest collection of original content on the world (the Internet), whereas the artists can rest assured that their creations are not being misused anywhere.

Such a system would benefit a very large group of individuals indeed – artists of every denomination, bloggers, and even researchers.

Creating a license comes at no cost. A fee is paid to Ozmo when the license is purchased (30 %). A reporting tab lets the artist know who is buying what and when.

It is a fact that marketing firms and advertising agencies are incorporating user-generated content into their work at a steady rate. The reasons are obvious. It is only commendable that a platform regulating the whole process has emerged. If you are an artist, of legal age, and want to start down the publishing pathway this website will be a mandatory port of call.

Answers.Yahoo.comDo you go berserk whenever you are looking for something you are sure exists on the web but you can’t find it? Don’t worry: it’s happened to all of us at some point, and Q&A forums can be a good and more humane way to solve the gaps of search engines. Like many other similar sites which are seeming to pop up everywhere, Yahoo! Answers depends on a community of members who post questions to be answered by the community of users in a short period of time (usually four days); once you get an answer, you rate the person who provided the information you felt was more accurate or more useful, and thus help determine who are the most authoritative collaborators, and who aren’t.

Some questions are simply not so easy to settle, and in that case you can get the community of readers to help you decide and vote collectively on the best option. After a question has been answered, that is, an answer has been decided on, either by the person who posted the question in the first place, or by the community, they become closed, so that nobody can provide more answers for the same question, but users are allowed to browse those answers to find out about cool stuff. There are lots of reasons why this service is useful, the first one being that people trust it: Yahoo! Answers is the third most visited site in the reference category; it boasts an impressive number of 20 million users, who have given nothing less than 400 million answers in different categories, ranging from health, education, finance or tech to dining out, Yahoo products and relationships. As is the case in any other user-generated content site, as more and more people use it, the site becomes more and more reliable, though this issue has been questioned by several sources, including a recent article.

com is the contribution of Amazon to this trend: a portal where users join to ask questions about whatever topic they are curious about, and get answers from other community users. In order to keep the questions interesting, they have to be worded in 120 characters for the title, with 1,200 extra character room, and can be answered in the week following its post; after that period is over, all the answers get shown and a voting period ensues. In order to post answers or questions, users have to create an account in the site, and they get awarded points for their answers, which is a way of implementing credibility systems like those used by eBay to rate how trust worthy an ‘answerer’ is, as per the opinion of those asking the questions. A good bit about the site is that users can post their questions anonymously; also interesting is the fact that users don’t get to see the answers posted by other users before them in order to make sure that everyone does their best to come up with unbiased and useful stuff as opposed to copying other people’s thoughts or facts. Interestingly, answers can be in text-only format, or include embedded videos, Google maps or any item from the Amazon catalogue.
