PIRATE BAY’S PETER SUNDE CREATES FLATTR
I’ve written before that I think alternative forms of currency may provide benefits for not just filmmakers but many niche content creators and also social interest vendors. Peter Sunde, one of the founders of the torrent site The Pirate Bay, has launched his venture, Flattr. Basically, on a monthly basis you commit to an amount of money that you’ll disperse to content creators. Then, as the month goes by, you click on their Flattr buttons and at the end of the month the service divvies up your funds and gives an equal amount to each person you’ve clicked. Watch below, as Sunde says what I just did.
