A new crowdfunding platform is letting authors create public domain ebooks once they have reached their targets. Unglue.it means writers get their work read, while getting compensated for digital content. The objective of unglue.it is to reward authors and publishers for sharing their work.
To make them free, the public domain ebooks happen in a variety of ways. The first option is the creators make an ebook, apply creative commons license first and ask for financial contributions later. They could also write a book, set a fundraising goal then automatically apply creative commons licenses when it's reached. Or they could ask for funding first, create the book after a successful campaign and release it copyright-free afterwards.
