Re: Fedora Media Project (was: Re: New Member introduction)

I think it's a neat idea. Along the lines of what Magnatune does in allowing you to pay back whatever you want the artist to have over the price.

At the very least, you could have the media listed here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution/OnlineVendors and explain that you were  distributing some of  what you could be charging in mark-up back to the community that created it.  Perhaps you could just statically set the price such that for every purchased copy, another one was available to Free Media or under the SponsoredMedia project, and make a pretty simple and powerful move. You'd be able to fulfill the on demand orders as an OnlineMedia provider, and spool up the donation fund to be able to queue up, etc. I forget the pricing in your example, but IIRC you could just set that as the price, and a $12 DVD would fetch a copy for the buyer and another for free.

Word would travel pretty fast in a one for one deal like that, and any other vendor is still free to pony up support the way you have, and no one is given special treatment.

I'm always happy to improve what we have at the moment, in respect to the
vendors/the vendors lists. I think a project to do this would be great.

I'll be happy to manage such a project (alongside Thomas, who can take care of
the distribution of materials: the FreeMedia project, and any other
distribution-related ideas that may appear).
