Abstract

An Internet economy is characterised by the availability of an increasing number of goods and services that are best understood as system products. This means that when customers judge the product value it is not the individual part that counts but the product as a whole (in other words the system product). The individual subsystems thus stand in a relation of complementarity to one another.
