Ted Hope over at Truly Free Film offers this from the folks who brought you THE PIRATE BAY:
Flattr.com - How Flattr Works from Flattr on Vimeo.
See? All the time smart people are thinking up new ways to solve problems because there's money to be made by doing it. Content creation is not going to hell and everyone isn't going to the poor house.
Things are changing. We have to change with it.
Rethink. Adapt. Adopt.
Someone at the Pirate bay decided to do just that. They went from being pirates to being corsairs.
Let's hope it works. If it doesn't we move on to something that does - not just for the companies leveraging the content from creatives, but for everyone.
That's not a socialist idea - it's one firmly rooted in capitalism.
