See full text

The present invention relates to a method of constructing a play list of a plurality of digital content for transmission and presentation on a public access electronic terminal for use with various data processing resources. The method establishes a virtual terminal on a play list server; selects the plurality of digital content at the virtual terminal; appends a digital content header to each of the plurality of digital content included in the play list; stores the play list in association with said virtual terminal; transmits the play list from the virtual terminal to the public access electronic commerce terminal; selectively receives the play list from the public access electronic commerce terminal; generates an activity report in the public access electronic commerce terminal based on the play list transmission; and selectively updates the data processing resources to reflect the activity report.
