Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am developing a proposal in my mind about this issue.

I propose a "pay for dsplay" o "pay for interchange" artist fee.
All work is, in principle open source. If you write a song or a painting or a Tv series or.. well whatever.

Then an public-prrivate (or whatever) enterprise tracks the number of displays which the authors do (each one can track their own work and report it if they want). In the case of internet you can count the donwloads and views rom your own free page.

This organization gets the funding from a tax in any digital and support material. All museums, books, DVD pay  the fee. So, the price of the book will be basicallya fee, the CD, DVD, hard disks will charge the fee depending on the store capacity. Museums will charge according to space.

And all the revenues will be given to the authors depending on the distribution.

So, art will be open and for free, the physical support will be charged.. and the authors will get according to their ability to get a hearing...

Open source but artitst can live.. and they do not need huge superstructures.. jsut a good group of fans..

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
