      >charge for every byte of data flowing through their equipment

      I remember a few years back seeing a US patent application from Microsoft which effectively allowed for the charging of the movement and processing of data within a distributed computer aka cloud computer platform:

      Memory to CPU chargeable

      CPU time chargeable

      Cpu to memory chargeable

      memory occupancy chargeable

      Disk I/O chargeable

      Disk usage chargeable

      etc.
