With any form of distribution, you talk to the distributor and they talk to
the copyright holder. Agreements are made and dollars change hands.

So digital/network distribution is no different. You reach an agreement with
the party that has the right to grant you the right to distribute the
materials via network, for whatever dollar amount is agreed upon.

As I've said before, "duplication rights" is kind of a model for what you
might expect to pay.

Get everything in writing. There're lots of parameters including definition
of the user base, clip rights, download rights, cache rights, physical media
rights, streaming rights, etc.
