The telecommunications industry has successfully adopted traditional business models for the dissemination of mobile technology based on a hierarchical distribution network of media content (voice and data). BIONETS is an innovative project, EU sponsored, which enables node based and decentralised distribution of content, where the idea of propagation within nodes is bio-inspired. This node-based network layout is an opportunity for the introduction and exploration of alternative economic models for content distribution. These models are already used in other commercial sectors as the basis for development of decentralised and parallel (but not substitute) business models for trade or exchange of goods (content). The paper presents a number of working cases in which these models are applied and the economic definitions used to define the operational environment. The aim of the paper is to introduce to the reader potential ways to use these models on the BIONETS network layout.
