Here, it is possible to apply for a work (song) created by the user online, and to listen to the music for which such an application has been made in the same manner as in FIG. Can receive such services by clicking on the part of the display corresponding to the desired service.

[GROOVE PRESS]
In this case, the song that the user has applied for is targeted for evaluation by other users.
As described with reference to FIG. 17 and FIG. 17, the service for allowing the evaluation of the song for which the application is made and the ranking of the target object based on the voting result are presented to the user as described with reference to FIGS. 18 and 19. Services are also being offered.

Next, the user, who is the point of the present invention, votes for the evaluation of the object to be evaluated, such as a song (CD), as described with reference to FIGS. 16 and 17.
A method of presenting the ranking of the objects based on the voting result to the user as described in FIGS. 18 and 19 will be further described.

First, with reference to the flow chart of FIG. 26, an operation procedure of the personal computer 1 when the user votes for the evaluation of the object to be evaluated will be described.
In addition, here, for example, the open space “GRO for amateur musicians described with reference to FIGS.
A case will be described in which a musical work (song) (hereinafter referred to as an applied work as appropriate) of a user who has applied in “Over Press” is targeted for evaluation.

In this case, each user sends the song created by himself to the IP server 5 online in the open space "GROVE PRESS", or video tape, a magnetic tape for music, or a magneto-optical disk. It is recorded in, for example, and mailed to the information provider (IP server 5) to apply.

When applying for a work online, by clicking the "work application" portion while the home page of FIG. 25 is displayed, the IP server 5 sends a response to the personal computer 1 in response. On the other hand, since a home page for inputting the necessary items for application is sent, the user inputs the work by inputting the necessary items.

Here, FIG. 27 shows a home page transmitted from the IP server 5 when applying for a work online. When a user who submits a work is ranked on such a home page by the number of the song as the work to be submitted, the composer name of the song, the lyricist, the playing time, and the ranking table described later in FIG. 32. The part used for the digest version, whether the user is in a band or solo, band name, solo name, genre of song to apply, user ID given when applying for membership, Enter the introductory text and the delegation of copyright management for the song you are applying for, and operate the "Register" button at the bottom of the screen. As a result, the work is transmitted to the IP server 5 in the form of an electronic file together with these input items.

The band name field is input only when the user forms a band. In addition, in the band name field, an input field is displayed by clicking an icon having a downward triangle at the bottom thereof, and the band name is input therein. Further, the solo name field is input only when the user is solo, and the user ID of the user is described therein.

The entered items can be cleared by operating the "clear" button at the bottom of the screen. Further, when the "return" button below the "clear" button is operated, the home page one before is returned.

On the IP server 5, when a work is applied,
A home page (hereinafter, appropriately referred to as a work screen) for introducing the applied work is generated and stored in association with the applied work.

Since the applied work in this case is a song, the applied work is basically stored in the form of audio data. However, works can be applied not only for songs but also for example, video images of scenes in which they are performing. In this case, the video is stored as video data together with the audio data in association with the work screen.

A user who wants to vote for the evaluation of the work applied as described above operates the personal computer 1 to operate the personal computer 1 as described above.
Enter "RESS" and access the work screen in step S1. The work screen can be accessed, for example, as follows.

That is, when the home page shown in FIG. 25 is displayed, for example, "This week's New Re
Click "lease". In response to this, the IP server 5 sends a message to the PC 1
The home page corresponding to "Release" is transmitted. On this homepage, a list of the works submitted this week is displayed, and when you click on the desired work in the list, the IP server 5 sends it to the PC 1 for that work. The corresponding work screen is sent. As described above, the user can access the work screen corresponding to the desired work.

A schematic representation of this work screen is shown in FIG.
8 (however, the layout of the work screen is not limited to this).

That is, at the top of the work screen, the title of the work (applied work name) is arranged, and at the bottom thereof, for example, the user who applied for the work (or a member of the band) and the performance scene are photographed. Photos and comments (introduction of works) introducing the work are arranged. In addition, these "entry work name", "photograph", and "work introduction"
For entries submitted online, those that have been entered as necessary information, and those submitted by mail are those described in the prescribed application form (attached for photos). is there.

Furthermore, in the upper part of "Introduction of work", "◆ A
Display of "UDIO DATA" and "◆ Movie DATA" is arranged. This "◆ AUDIO DATA"
Alternatively, “◆ moving image DATA” is displayed in the IP server 5 when the audio data or the video data of the work is stored in association with the work screen, and accordingly, FIG. About the work introduced by the work screen, the work can be heard or viewed.

That is, when the portion "◆ AUDIO DATA" is clicked, the audio data associated with the work screen is transmitted from the IP server 5 to the personal computer 1, and thus the audio data is associated with the audio data. The music to be played is output from a speaker (not shown). Also, "◆
When the portion of "moving image DATA" is clicked, the video data associated with the work screen is transmitted from the IP server 5 to the personal computer 1, whereby the image corresponding to the video data is displayed on the display 19. (As described above, the performance scenery, etc.) is displayed.

On the work screen, a column of "What is your rating for this work?" For voting the rating for this work is provided below "Photograph" and "Work introduction". In this column, similarly to the case described with reference to FIG. 17, the evaluation of the work can be attached with any one of the scores of 1 to 5. That is, the user can input the evaluation for the work by clicking any one of the sections 1 to 5 in this column. In the example of FIG. 28,
Four points are clicked.

A "vote" button is provided at the bottom of the "What is your rating for this work?" Column.
The points given by clicking on the "What is your rating for this work?" Column (hereinafter referred to as "rating points" as appropriate) will be voted on by clicking this "vote" button (IP server 5 To be sent to).

Here, the work screen is actually configured as shown in FIG. 29, for example. In this embodiment, the song, band name (artist name (AR
TIST)), the lyricist, the composer, and the genre of the song are displayed, and an icon similar to the note-shaped icon described in FIG. 16 is displayed below the icon. When this icon is clicked, the music can be listened to in the same manner as described with reference to FIG. However, in the case of FIG. 16, the digest is a combination of a part of a plurality of songs, but in the case of FIG. 29, the applied work (song) displayed in the column of the song.
All of "IN NY LIFE" can be listened to.

Further, in the lower part, as in the case described with reference to FIG. 28, "What is your evaluation of this work?"
Column and a "vote" button are provided.

Further, in this embodiment, in the column "What is your rating for this work?" And the bottom of the "Vote" button, for example, as in the case shown in FIG.
There is a "I want to say anything you want!" Button and an "I want to get whatever you want" column. Therefore, in this case, the user can post an impression or the like on the applied work in the same manner as described above by operating the "I want to say anything you want!" Button. In addition, when a post is made in this way, the content of the post is also reflected in the "all you want to say" column. Further, as in the case described with reference to FIGS. 12 and 13, the home page in which more detailed description of this column is made is displayed by clicking the desired column. FIG. 30 shows an example of a home page displayed when the “All you want to say” column in FIG. 29 is clicked.

The lower part of FIGS. 29 and 30 shows
Although a "return" button is displayed, when this button is operated, the previous home page is returned to.

After the above-mentioned work screen is displayed, the user who wants to vote the evaluation score for the work, in step S2, puts his / her own evaluation in the "What is your evaluation for this work?" Column. Select by clicking on the corresponding rating point. Then, in step S3, the "vote" button is clicked. This allows
The evaluation point selected in step S2 can be obtained from the personal computer 1
It is transmitted to the P server 5.

In the IP server 5, the evaluation points transmitted from each user as described above are totalized for each work, and the order of the works is determined based on the totalized value.
Then, based on the result of the determination of the ranking, a home page displaying the ranking table of the works is generated (updated if already generated).

FIG. 31 shows an example of a home page on which a ranking table of works is displayed. In the example of FIG. 31, the work names (application names) of works ranked first to tenth and points (the number of points) based on the aggregate value of the evaluation points for each work are posted. Such a home page is transmitted from the IP server 5 to the personal computer 1 by clicking on the "Access best 10 of the week" portion while the home page shown in FIG. 25 is displayed, for example. .

In this case, the user can easily recognize which work each user highly evaluates. That is, in the past, the ranking of works submitted by the user in this way is usually done by the information provider side.
Prepared by several judges, and performed by the judges. Therefore, the ranking table thus obtained is the result of the evaluation by the judge and does not reflect the opinions of general users. On the other hand, the ranking table obtained as described above reflects the opinions of general users. Therefore, in this case, the user should evaluate how other users evaluate the submitted work. You can know if you are there.

Such a ranking table is also useful when the above-mentioned products such as CDs and books are purchased by online shopping. That is, on the screen for introducing a product in online shopping, normally, only the information provided by the manufacturer of the product or an information provider who provides information about the product is displayed. However, as described above, the user who has already purchased the product votes for the evaluation point for the product, and the ranking table (or the product introduction screen displaying the voting result) based on this is displayed. When presented to the user, a user who is thinking about purchasing the product can decide whether or not to purchase the product in consideration of evaluations by other users.

In FIG. 31, the home page on which the ranking table of the applied works is displayed is shown schematically, but this home page is actually constructed as shown in FIG. 32, for example. That is, in the embodiment of FIG.
The ranking table of the 1st to 10th is composed of the ranking, the song corresponding to the “application title” in FIG. 31, the band name, and the point corresponding to the “point number” in FIG. Each rank column (row) is linked to the work screen (FIGS. 28 and 29) for the work of that rank, and therefore,
The user clicks the column of the desired work to display the work screen (FIGS. 28 and 29) on the display 19 of the personal computer 1 as described above, and further, the “◆ AUDIO DATA” or “ ◆ Moving image DAT
By clicking on the "A" part, you can hear or see the work.

Furthermore, at the top of the ranking table, "Au
"dio AU25968Kb (5'0") "and" A
"AUDIO WAV 77148 Kb (5'0") "is displayed. "Audio AU25968K
b (5'0 ")" or "Audio WAV7714
When "8Kb (5'0") "is clicked, audio data corresponding to the digest version of the work (song) ranked in the ranking table is transmitted from the IP server 5 to the personal computer 1. And therefore,
In this case, the user can listen to the digest version of the ranked songs.

It should be noted that "Audio AU25968Kb
"AU25968Kb" in "(5'0") "is I
The audio data transmitted from the P server 5 is AU
It is of a format (mainly a format that can be handled by Macintosh (trademark)), and indicates that the data amount is 25968 bytes. Also, "(5'0") "
Indicates that the transmitted audio data is obtained by sequentially connecting each of the 10 ranked songs for the same period of time to obtain 5 minutes (therefore,
In this case, the audio data is ranked 10
The songs are joined together for 30 seconds each).

Therefore, "Audio WAV77148
If "Kb (5'0") "is clicked, WAV
77148 bytes of audio data in a format (mainly a format that can be handled by Windows (trademark)),
Each of the 10 ranked songs is stitched together for 30 seconds and transmitted from the IP server 5 to the personal computer 1. It should be noted that such digest version audio data may be, for example, one obtained by joining the portions within 30 seconds from the start of each song, or one obtained by joining each other arbitrary portion of each song. It can also be one.

Next, FIG. 33 is a block diagram functionally showing the IP server 5 which provides the above services. The work storage unit 40 is configured to store video data and audio data corresponding to works submitted by users. The homepage storage unit 41 includes a homepage of a work screen that introduces the submitted work as shown in FIGS. 28 and 29, and a homepage that displays a ranking table as shown in FIG. 31 or 32. Remembered Further, the home page storage unit 41 also stores other home pages as described above.

In the work storage section 40, video data and audio data are stored in association with the corresponding work screens stored in the home page storage section 41.

The point storage unit 42 is adapted to store evaluation information for evaluating the above-mentioned evaluation points and other works transmitted from the personal computer 1. The reading unit 43 reads a home page (for example, a work screen (target information) or a home page on which a ranking table is displayed) corresponding to a request from the personal computer 1 from the home page storage unit 41, and the personal computer via the communication control unit 46. 1 is transmitted to the user, so that the home page is presented to the user. Further, when the personal computer 1 requests audio data or video data corresponding to a work as described above, the reading unit 43 reads the audio data or video data from the work storage unit 40, and the communication control unit 46.
It is adapted to be transmitted to the personal computer 1 via.

The order determination section 44 determines the order of works based on the evaluation information stored in the point storage section 42,
The determination result is reflected on the homepage on which the ranking table stored in the homepage storage unit 41 is displayed. The point writing unit 45 totals the evaluation points voted by the user, transmitted from the personal computer 1 and received by the communication control unit 46, for each work, and writes the evaluation points in the point storage unit 42. Further, the point writing unit 45 monitors the communication control unit 46, and the number of times the user has accessed the work screen of each work (the number of times of access) is one of evaluation information for evaluating each work. The number of accesses for each work is also written in the point storage unit 42.

The communication control unit 46 transmits the data output by the reading unit 43 to the Internet 4 and also the data transmitted via the Internet 4 (for example,
A request for a home page, an evaluation point, etc.) is received and output to the reading unit 43 or the point writing unit 45.

Of the IP server 5 configured as described above, the work storage section 40, the home page storage section 41,
The point storage unit 42 is the hard disk 25 of FIG.
(Or the magneto-optical disk 26), the reading unit 43, the order determining unit 44, and the point writing unit 45 are provided to the CPU 21 of FIG. 3, and the communication control unit 46 is provided to the communication unit 27 of FIG.
Each corresponds.

Next, the operation will be described with reference to the flowchart in FIG. It should be noted that the work screen (homepage) corresponding to the applied work has already been created and stored in the homepage storage unit 41, and the work corresponding to the work screen stored in the homepage storage unit 41 has already been stored in the work storage unit 40. It is assumed that audio data or video data of a work is stored in association with the work screen.

In this embodiment, the ranking of each work is determined based on not only the above-mentioned evaluation points from the user but also the number of times the user has accessed the work screen (the number of accesses). There is.

In the IP server 5, first, in step S11, the content stored in the point storage unit 42 is cleared by the point writing unit 45. That is, in step S11, the variable A (i) in which the number of accesses to the work screen of each work is set and the variable B (i) in which the total value of the evaluation points for each work is set are initialized to 0, for example. It The argument i of the variables A (i) and B (i) identifies each work.
In (i) or B (i), the number of accesses to the work screen for work #i or the evaluation points voted for work #i are stored.

Then, in step S12, the reading unit 43 determines whether the personal computer 1 has requested access to the work screen. Step S
If it is determined in 12 that there is no request for access to the work screen, the process proceeds to step S13, and other processing is performed. That is, for example, when there is a request for a home page on which the ranking table as shown in FIG. 31 or 32 is displayed, the read section 43 reads the home page from the home page storage section 41, and the communication control section It is transmitted to the personal computer 1 via 46. Alternatively, for example, when there is a request for audio data or video data from the personal computer 1, the audio data or video data is read by the reading unit 43, and again, via the communication control unit 46,
It is sent to the personal computer 1. After the above processing is performed in step S13, the process returns to step S12 again.

If it is determined in step S12 that there is a request for access to the work screen,
That is, the access request for the work screen is transmitted by the communication control unit
When it is received at 6, the reading unit 43 reads the work screen from the homepage storage unit 41 and transmits it to the personal computer 1 as described above. And step S14
Then, in the point writing unit 45, the variable A (i) stored in the point storage unit 42 and corresponding to the work #i for which the access request is made is incremented by 1.

After that, in step S15, the communication control unit 46 determines whether or not there is a vote of the evaluation score for the work #i for which the access request is made. If it is determined in step S15 that the evaluation score has been voted for the work #i for which the access request has been made, that is,
When the evaluation point is transmitted from the personal computer 1 as described above and is received by the communication control unit 46, the process proceeds to step S16, where the point writing unit 45 stores the variable B (stored in the point storage unit 42). i), which corresponds to work #i for which an access request has been made,
The evaluation points received by the communication control unit 46 are added, the addition result is set as a new variable B (i), and step S1 is performed.
Go to 7.

On the other hand, if it is determined in step S15 that there is no evaluation point vote for the work #i for which the access request is made, step S16 is skipped and the process proceeds to step S17. Therefore, if only the work screen is accessed and no work is voted for, the variable A
Only (i) is updated.

In step S17, whether it is time to update the homepage ranking table stored in the homepage storage unit 41, that is, for example, the ranking table is updated for a predetermined period (for example, since the ranking table was last updated). 1
The ranking determination unit 44 determines whether (for example, a week) has elapsed. When it is determined in step S17 that the predetermined period has not yet elapsed since the ranking table was last updated, the process returns to step S12. Also,
When it is determined in step S17 that the predetermined period has elapsed since the ranking table was last updated, the process proceeds to step S18, and variables A (i) and B (i) stored in the point storage unit 42 are stored. Is added for each work #i, and the addition result (hereinafter referred to as “acquired points”)
C (i) is the final evaluation (evaluation information) from the user for each work #i.

Then, the process proceeds to step S19, where the ranking determination section 44 sorts the acquired points C (i) in ascending order, for example, and the top ten is detected to determine the so-called best ten. Further, in step S20, the order determination unit 44 reflects the best ten on the home page in which the ranking table is displayed, which is stored in the home page storage unit 41, and the process ends.

As described above, in the IP server 5, the number of accesses to each work (the access to a work is performed by the intention of the user.
The ranking of each work is determined based on the user's evaluation of the work) and the evaluation points voted by the user, and this is reflected in the ranking table.

In the above, the work (work screen) is accessed by the personal computer 1 and the work is evaluated. However, this is performed by the game terminal 6 or the AV device 10 other than the personal computer 1. It is also possible to do so. Furthermore, the telephone 7 (or the mobile telephone 8)
Alternatively, FAX 9 may be used.

With the telephone 7, it is possible to access the work and evaluate the work in the same manner as in the case of the so-called telegon system, for example. FIG.
Shows a processing procedure on the user side when the work is accessed by the telephone 7 and the work is evaluated. In the following description, it is assumed that a push button signal is output from the telephone 7 but the telephone 7
It is also applicable when the dial pulse is output from.

In this case, the user first operates the push button of the telephone 7 to access the SP server 3 via the public network 2 and, after establishing the communication link, further operates the push button. , SP server 3
To establish a communication link with the IP server 5 via the Internet 4.

The processing necessary for the telephone 7 to communicate with the IP server 5 is performed by the SP server 3. That is, although the same data exchange as in the case of using the personal computer 1 is performed between the IP server 5 and the SP server 3, the SP server 3
However, when transmitting the data from the IP server 5 to the telephone 7, the SP server 3 converts the data from the IP server 5 into data that can be handled by the telephone 7, that is, a voice waveform. Has been done. Also, SP
The server 3 sends the data from the telephone 7 (push button signal corresponding to push button operation, voice signal) to the I
When transmitting to the P server 5, the SP server 3 converts the data from the telephone 7 into data that can be handled by the IP server 5.

Between the telephone 7 and the SP server 3, and S
After the communication link between the P server 3 and the IP server is established, the IP server 5 transmits, for example, text data for notifying the content of the service. This text data is converted into a voice waveform in the SP server 3 and transmitted to the telephone 7. As a result, the telephone 7 outputs a voice notifying the service content.

This voice is, for example, "1 when selecting an introduction corner of an applied work, 2 when selecting a book corner, ..., When selecting a voting result corner.
Press x respectively. If you want to access the work and evaluate it, select the introduction corner of the submitted work. That is, in this case, in step S31, the user operates the push button “1” of the telephone 7 to access the introduction corner of the applied work.

When the IP server 5 receives the push signal corresponding to the push button "1", it outputs voice data explaining the introduction corner of the applied work, and further, a digest version of the audio data corresponding to the applied work, Output with the number to identify each entry. As a result, a voice explaining the introduction corner of the applied work is output from the telephone 7, and then a part of each of the applied works is sequentially output with a number added to the head thereof.

When the user listens to the digest version of the audio data and wishes to audition the entire applied work, the user inputs the number added to the beginning by operating the push button. . In response to this, the IP server 5 transmits the audio data of the entire applied work corresponding to the number, whereby the user listens to the audio data in step S32. The transmission of audio data from the IP server 5 can be stopped by operating the telephone 7 in a predetermined manner.

When the transmission of audio data is completed or stopped in the IP server 5, a message asking whether or not to vote for the applied work is displayed, for example, "Do you vote? Is 1,

In this embodiment, the WWW system constructed on the Internet is used as a service in which the user votes the evaluation of the object and presents the rank of the object based on the voting result to the user. Since it is provided as one of the services of electronic entertainment magazines, in order to receive this service, the enrollment procedure as described above is required. It is possible to make it widely available to general users as well as the users.

Further, in the present embodiment, the number of accesses and the evaluation points are simply added, and the ranking is determined based on the added value. It is also possible to determine the number and the evaluation point on the basis of the addition result obtained by weighting and adding the number and the evaluation point, or either one of the access number and the evaluation point.

Further, in this embodiment, the evaluation points are
Although the selection is made from 1 to 5 points, the range of the evaluation points is not limited to this.

Further, in the present embodiment, the object to be evaluated by the user is the object to be evaluated, but the object to be evaluated in this way is not limited to the object to be applied by the user. That is, for example, a product such as a CD or a book, a financial product, a service such as a trip provided by a travel agency, or the like can be an object to be evaluated.

For example, FIGS. 36 and 37 show homepages for voting when a CD is an object to be evaluated. 36 and 37 constitute one home page, and FIG. 37 shows the part following FIG. 36. Further, the homepages shown in FIGS. 36 and 37 are adapted to be transmitted from the IP server 5 when, for example, the portion of the sixth ranked CD “LOVE SONG” in FIG. 19 is clicked.

The homepages shown in FIGS. 36 and 37 are constructed in the same manner as the homepages shown in FIGS. 16 and 17, and therefore the user is asked to enter the column "What is your rating for this album?" You can vote by clicking on the evaluation point in and clicking the "vote" button (Fig. 37).
