--- Information Brokering ---
One of big things on Internet is "Information Brokering." This involves packaging and repackaging of information, then selling that information on Web to thousands of people.
The early Information Brokers scattered their wares all over Internet and now same set of "reports" exist in a thousand different places. Many information brokers today use free reports that are floating around on Web and repackage that information for sale as "information packets."
For example, there is an old report called "The 1995-2005 Job Outlook in Brief" that was distributed back in 1995. I purchased original set of reports on CD to see what it was all about---the idea was that you could resell these reports and make money. But, how many others were reselling or giving away same report? Today, you can find same report on numerous Web sites for free!
