Okay, so what if Flattr but for local music files?
I love listening to music offline, but Spotify has an undoubted benefit of still giving little bits of money to creators (even if the industry takes a huge part of the royalties for themselves).
So I was thinking, what if I could put my scrobbling data to some sensible use?
Let’s say ever musician has a public PayPal or something like that, and that I put 5 dollars every month aside for these payments. Work through the data, calculate who gets what part of the 5 dollars, and send them the split money.
Now that could only work if musicians got into it, and if enough fans got into it.
