TOP NEWS Launches Pay Per View Service

Los Angeles-based live video streaming web site will start allowing its users to charge people who want to watch their live video streams, the firm said today. Stickam said its new PayPerLive service allows anyone with a computer, Web cam, and Internet connection to host and charge for live events on the site. The service--currently available in a limited beta--is targeted at entertainers, teachers, consultants, bands, and others who want to charge access for their video streams. The firm said that it will take 25 percent of the profits of user-hosted events, in a tiered revenue-sharing program.
