A. Javůrek, T. Bella: Paying for online news and services (50 min.)
Hundreds of publishers and online service providers have tried to switch from free to freemium/paid models and failed. Is there any hope for print media on the web if they are not able to support quality journalism only by the advertisement?
We will explain why we think most of the media get it wrong and how the cooperation of major media companies in Central Europe will radically change the internet as we know it in 2011.
