Another option is one that I think you already do and that is to wrap an
organization's branding around your licensed content:
* Have the organization set up a domain name service entry that
points to your server (e.g. resources.library.oh.us => 188.8.131.52)
* Get from the organization an HTML template of how they would like
LII content to appear. This is most likely just their existing
* Add code/configuration to your server that recognizes when the
requesting URL is 'resources.library.oh.us' and present LII content
within the organization's template rather than your default template.
* Add statistics and customization options to taste, bake at 350 for
thirty minutes, and serve with vanilla ice cream
To most everyone in the world it looks like the organization's own
content. Only someone who traceroutes the URL or has Netcraft's browser
plugin would notice that it isn't the organization providing the web
service. For me that would be a value-added service that I'd consider
paying for (if I had a budget to do such things...).
