Title
(EN) A METHOD OF CONDUCTING BUSINESS
(FR) PROCEDE DE CONDUITE COMMERCIALE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of conducting business to provide a subsidised internet connection to a user is disclosed. The method involves establishing that a link exists between the user and a participating internet service provider (ISP). A program is installed and executed by the user after the link is established and a window is displayed on a display visible to the user. The window remains active and has priority at all times whilst the program is active and periodically displays in the window a selected banner advertisement in return for which the internet connection to the user is subsidised.

L'invention concerne un procédé de conduite commerciale qui permet de fournir à un utilisateur une connexion internet bonifiée. Le procédé consiste à établir qu'il existe un lien entre l'utilisateur et un prestataire de service internet (PSI) participant. L'utilisateur installe et exécute un programme après établissement du lien et une fenêtre s'affiche sur un écran visible pour l'utilisateur. La fenêtre restant activée, est prioritaire en permanence tant que le programme est activé et affiche sur la fenêtre un bandeau publicitaire en échange duquel la connexion internet avec l'utilisateur a été bonifiée.
