. I am will of cos, "donate" some sum of BTC, but i am cant say, that i am "buy"
something from them.
The idea behind this project is to donate to the artist. I think it would be difficult to find a computer without some for of "illegally downloaded" content on it. Record labels and organizations attempting to protect copyrights are failing musicians. I trust that consumers will fairly compensate artists if they can do so on their own terms.
The Internet provides the means to put artist in direct contact with their fans. BitTorrent provides the means of distribution. Bitcoin provides a perfect means for fans to contribute DIRECTLY to artists' livelihood.
Traditional record labels have little to offer artists in 2011. Labels are no longer needed for marketing or distribution. While we're at it, we can cut MasterCard and Visa out of the deal as well.
Oh and iTunes? Take a look at this: http://artists-first.net/Artists%20First%20Comparison%20Chart.pdf
As a music fan, is this a paradigm that you want to support?
P.S. Write an email to Carina Round suggesting that she start accepting bitcoin donations!
