Abstract (Document Summary)

The BBC launched an on-demand Internet television service (in beta) in late July. The BBC iPlayer now provides access to television programs for up to a week after the original broadcast with the rights to view a downloaded program for 30 days. And herein lies the first contentious issue: UK Internet service providers are beginning to worry that if the service becomes very popular, the networks will be clogged with video data being downloaded by iPlayer users. Like the BBC iPlayer, the e-petition is also in its beta phase. It attracts thousands of petitions on any topic from the frivolous to the serious. On the other hand, the Open Access (OA) and the Developing World portal will showcase research published in OA journals of interest to that community by including the most relevant peer-reviewed articles from BioMed Central's own journal collection and those of other participating publishers.
