Sports Blogs Network
Former AOL Exec Raises Funding For Sports Blogs Network(October 29, 2008 TechCrunch)
SB Nation (short for SportsBlogs Nation) operates with a network model, in which more than 150 local, team-based sites are linked together with a common visual template but remain written and programmed by local writers. Rather than strike affiliate relationships or simply represent sites for national ad sales, Bankoff has structured equity swaps for each of the sites in SB Nation in which the company acquires all the content, URLs and related assets, and the bloggers then share the ad revenue.
This article is an article on the sports blogs networks.
I thought that the method of distributing earnings of this blog network was interesting.
This blog network is to purchase the properties such as contents and URL of the joining blog, and to distribute the advertisement income to the blogger.
There is an advantage that the blog network can freely use contents etc. if it is this method.
I am anxious about the treatment of the copyright in the blog network.
The blog network in such a form might increase in Japan.
