==Peering== Participants may interconnect the free network with other networks, be they private, proprietary, or free. Such peering must be conducted in such a way that it does not bring harm to the network. When interconnecting a private network to the free network, it is the responsibility of the participant establishing the interconnection to ensure that the private network is equipped to deal with whatever traffic may result from such interconnection. Paid or unpaid applications may be offered to the network from interconnected private networks, so long as users are not charged for the use of the private network itself -- for example, a participant may establish a paid web, sensor, or other application residing on a host inside of a private network, but they may not charge participants to reach that host. When interconnecting a proprietary network to the free network, it is the responsibility of the participant establishing the interconnection to ensure that the proprietary network is equipped to deal with whatever traffic may result from such interconnection in accordance with the terms and conditions associated with the use of the proprietary network. Paid and unpaid services, including ingress and egress capacity as well as other applications, may be offered to the network from interconnected proprietary networks. The provider of such services is responsible for making any terms and conditions of usage clear to users, which may include price above incurred cost. Participants may not exact payment for the use of interconnected proprietary networks in situations where the terms and conditions for the utilization thereof have not been made clear to the user. The NGB may establish rules for the sale of transit capacity to interconnected proprietary networks at a price above incurred cost. The NGB may also establish rules for the payment of dividends from those offering egress and ingress capacity to the network to those offering transport to and from points of interconnection. Such rules may provide for the even distribution of revenues amongst participants, or for the proportional allotment of revenues to those providing transport capacity between points of origination, termination, egress, or ingress, as the case may be. ((PPT)) When interconnecting an external free network to this free network, it is the responsibility of the participant establishing the interconnection to ensure that both networks are equipped to deal with whatever traffic may result from such interconnection, and that the licenses governing the two networks are compatible.
