I figure 1/100th of a cent ($0.0001) per step taken is quite reasonable, especially when you consider that walking is good for you! I am even willing to grant licensing waivers for walking that is done in connection with charitable events, and offer discounts for people who tend to take smaller steps (those under 5' tall, children, and senior citizens).
The biggest challenges will be keeping track of usage, and billing. I should see if the Fitbit people are interested in partnering with me on this; I'm sure we can work out a deal.
