Strayform is a place to “fund” new digital products. Rather than restrict and sell movies, music, texts, art, and software, authors of creative works get money upfront to create and release works under Creative Commons licenses.
Here you create a proposal for a new digital work. Fans put money on your new works. Strayform escrows funds to protect both consumers and creators. Once the funds reach a threshold you set work begins.
Strayform provides tools for you to communicate with funders and include them in the creative process. You can blog, discuss, send messages, and add pieces of your work as its being created.
When finished you are paid and your work is released under a Creative Commons license. This license lets you keep commercial control while turning your fanbase into a zero-cost distribution and advertising network working on your behalf. As owner of the content you are free to make more money by using existing monetization systems or licensing your work.
Strayform allows you to embed and run these projects on your own site and plugs into major social networks to virally spread your project. Strayform includes a licensing system giving you opportunities to make more money and licensees a simple and fast way to license your content.
