DiSfish is a new net-label using a "donate if you wish" model to generate revenue for the label, artists, select charities and Creative Commons. The ‘open content’ service lets registered users upload original songs and artwork for distribution online. Visitors to the site can download music and make unlimited legal copies for friends. If listeners wish to do so they may support the project through donations.
The artist gets 50% of the donation, 5% goes to Creative Commons, 5% goes for the charity of the DiSfish choice, 40% is for running and promoting DiSfish. All music is available by digital download only and released to the public under the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license from Creative Commons, except for special projects that will be released under the Attribution-ShareAlike license. All DiSfish artists keep all the rights to their music and financial reports will be provided on demand. The non-exclusive license still allows artists to sign agreements with other parties and release their own CDs (see Terms).
You can stream a selection of DiSfish music on the Art of Swimming playlist at Webjay. Podcasters are encouraged to use DiSfish music in their podsafe music shows. Here’s the blog.
DiSfish is created by two of the Creative Collective founders: Marco Raaphorst and Cezary Ostrowski.
