  Copycan — Buy it for the public domain!
What is Copycan?

Copycan is a new concept of distributing digital content.

Copycan allows musicians and other creators of digital content to receive
money and appreciation for their work without the restrictive methods of the
music industry.
How does it work?
Step 1: Upload Content!
The artist uploads his work in digital form (e.g. music files) to an online
platform run by a trusted party. He announces the amount of money he would
like to have for releasing his work under a free license like Creative
Step 2: Collect Money!
People transfer money to the trusted party's account with reference to the
particular artist. Maybe they want the particular work to be published or
just want to support the artist.
Step 3: Release and Distribute!
If the announced amount is reached, the artist gets paid, the content gets
released and is from then on freely available in the public domain. The files
can be copied and distributed through filesharing networks.

Culture is flowing freely, artist and consumers are happy.
