AOP hosted an interactive forum on 29 January 2004 on paid content, looking at both publishers aims and experience of charging for content and comparing these with online payment solutions specifically suited to publishers.
The half-day AOP forum aimed to facilitate knowledge sharing on areas such as subscriptions and micro-payments, looking at the different strategies implemented by both business-to-business and consumer online publishers, and comparing those to the products and services available in the industry. Speakers included: Richard Withey, global director of interactive media for The Independent
and Anne Ridyard, associate publisher at IDG. The session was moderated by Rafat Ali, founder and editor of award-winning Paidcontent.org
