OEmbed.com is the place where the standard is spelled out... e.g. what
you should provide as a web developer if you want to encourage
embedding and/or reduce crawling loads.  As such, there's no business
model (for them), but some website owner might have one that
incentives you to use the standard.

There is also a service that provides OEmbed data for tons of sites
already, my favorite being http://api.embed.ly/  I have no idea what
their business model is, but they have a wicked-cool service.
