Abstract
(EN)
In a contents distributing system, a managing server is equipped on a network with which all user terminals being capable of utilizing contents are allowed to connect, and a member card is issued to a user operating the user terminal. In the contents distributed from an information service server, a middleware for storing a history of distributing contents and a history of utilizing contents (log data etc.) to the member card and for transmitting this history of utilizing contents along with a user ID to the managing server is embedded. The managing server generates information indicating how much the particular contents are distributed from the information service server and how much the particular contents are utilized by the user, based on the collected history of utilizing contents and the collected user ID, and determines an amount of charging based on the charging rule.

Dans un système de distribution de contenus, un serveur de gestion est prévu dans un réseau avec lequel tous les terminaux d'utilisateur pouvant utiliser les contenus ont la permission de se connecter, et une carte de membre est issue pour un utilisateur utilisant un terminal d'utilisateur. Dans les contenus distribués à partir d'un serveur de service d'informations est intégré un intergiciel pour stocker un historique des contenus de distribution et un historique des contenus d'utilisation (données d'enregistrement etc.) de la carte de membre et pour transmettre l'historique des données d'utilisation avec un identificateur d'utilisateur au serveur de gestion. Ce serveur de gestion génère des informations indiquant dans quelle quantité les contenus spécifiques sont distribués à partir du serveur de service d'informations et dans quelle mesure les contenus spécifiques sont utilisés par l'utilisateur, sur la base de l'historique des contenus d'utilisation recueilli et de l'identificateur d'utilisateur recueilli, et détermine un montant de facturation sur la base du règlement de facturation.
