Fora.tv, a Discussion and Lecture Online Platform, Founded in 2007 - is Charging since March 2010 for Access to New Complete Videostreams

Since March 24th 2010 there is at fora.tv no more a clearly seperating line between scientific information, PR and charging: the newly introduced premium access is nether clearly defined nor transparent in its extensions - what is charged, how long, is there a time line, from where on the videos are free? - etc. - The shift between free access and premium access was done mostly silently - intransparency rules, bad style for the audience, which to a greater part is composed by an international community of netizens, mostly people who tried to support and build up a freely supported network of good information sources, what was btw. also the PR strategy of fora.tv during the last years - fora.tv's way to handle now the financial reward shows a lack of information society conceptions and a new way to organize them by digital supported technologies to gain nevertheless a financial outcome - unfortunately it proves also a lack of honesty which silently menaces by a systematicaly build up intransparency the access to reliable www based qualitiy of information.
