In this paper the authors present a requirement for assessing the quality of data and the development of efficient methods of valuing and exchanging data among web observatories. Using economic and business theory a range of concepts are explored which include a brief review of existing business structures related to the exchange of goods, data or otherwise. The paper calls for a wider discussion by the web observatory community to begin to define relevant criteria by which data can be assessed and improved over time.
