Flattr: a "long tail" business model to pay for downloaded content?
A long-tail micro-payment system invented by the co-founder of The Pirate Bay to pay authors and artists for their downloadable files: That sounds both very smart and slightly ironic, doesn’t it?
I don’t know if this is THE next business model to make downloaded content profitable but it’s definitely a step into a new paradigm. As far as I’m concerned, I’m almost sure I’m going to use it: making it easy to pay for what you like can’t be a bad idea.
