Users tip dig­i­tal con­tent providers to show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of qual­ity con­tent and to en­cour­age au­thors to cre­ate more. In essence, it is a gift. Con­sumers vol­un­tar­ily choose to of­fer the gift af­ter hav­ing con­sumed the con­tent. It is dif­fer­ent from pay­ing for dig­i­tal con­tent in ad­vance, and can­not be re­garded as a pur­chase. There­fore, force­fully charg­ing such a fee in­fringes on both con­sumers’ and con­tent providers’ le­gal in­ter­ests.
