Subject: Wikipedia's Economic Value
To: IP-ENFORCEMENT em roster.wcl.american.edu

Wikipedia is a shining example of valuable content created by
non-professionals. Because Wikipedia is created by volunteers, is
administered by a non-profit foundation, and is distributed for free, the
normal means of measuring value—such as revenue, market capitalization, and
book value—do  not directly apply. Nonetheless, there are a variety of
methods for estimating its value in terms of market value, replacement
cost, and the value it creates for its users. These methods suggest a
valuation in the tens of billions of dollars, a one-time replacement cost
of $6.6 billion with an annual updating cost of $630 million, and consumer
benefit in the hundreds of billions of dollars.
