Flattr : Java Glossary



Flattr hit the headlines when it agreed to accept money for WikiLeaks when PayPal, MasterCard and Visa caved to US government pressure. It is a micropayment system. When you see something you like, you can click a Flattr button. At the end of the month, your monthly donation budget is given proportionately to the number of clicks to gave to each potential recipient. Of course, you might set up Flattr buttons on your website or blogs so money could come to you too. You get money into the system with credit cards or PayPal and get it out with PayPal.

I hope this may evolve to system where use of a website might require a few cents admission, with an efficient system for collecting the royalties.
