User-generated Content - (Peer Production, Commons-based Peer Production, User-created Content, Consumer Generated Content, Consumer-generated Content.) - User-generated Content is often produced by networked communities of often amateur users. Typically the Internet is utilized but smaller networks such as Tivo might offer this. (Also see Walled Gardens.) Often anyone can join these communities and provide content. Unfortunately peer-production content generation often doesn't provide financial compensation. Also see Third-party Content Provider and Personal TV Channel.
