The Street Performer Protocol and Digital Copyrights
by John Kelsey and Bruce Schneier

We introduce the Street Performer Protocol, an electronic-commerce
mechanism to facilitate the private financing of public works. Using this
protocol, people would place donations in escrow, to be released to an
author in the event that the promised work be put in the public domain.
This protocol has the potential to fund alternative or "marginal" works.
