Indonesia Reciprocating Foundation

This is just my imaginary foundation, where people pay to companies or authors that have created products that have been used and/or are being useful to the lives of the people. Some of these people could be those who think the benefits contributed by these services have exceeded expectations and consider these authors deserve more help than what previously have been paid to them.
People could give like 5000, 10,000, 20,000 rupiahs at a time. When the amounts became significant enough, these would be sent to the respective companies. Like Ubuntu, other Open source authors, Proprietary companies etc.

Gerakan indonesia mau berterimakasih

Ini adalah organisasi yayasan khayalan saya, dimana organisasi ini mengumpulkan uang
dari para pengguna produk-produk dan kemudian uangnya dikirim kepada produsen yang bersangkutan.
Produsen-produsen yang akan diberikan uang kira-kira:
- Microsoft
- Ubuntu
- Adobe
- Para programmer open source lainnya
- Universal studio and music
- Pixar
- Konami
- Bandai
- Squaresoft
- Norton
- Nero
- Unilever
- Perusahaan pharmacy yang obatnya dicopy
- Dll.
Kenapa dibutuhkan yayasan? Karena setiap orang mungkin cuma kontribusi,
5000, 10000 rupiah, agar bisa cukup signifikan harus dikumpul semua baru kemudian
dibuatkan proposal langsung kepada perusahaan-perusahaan untuk menerima pemberian tersebut.

Mereka yang menyumbang dapat juga terdiri dari orang-orang yang menganggap bahwa pertolongan yang telah disediakan oleh para author/sumber ini melebihi harapan, dan dianggap pantas untuk mendapatkan lebih banyak pertolongan lagi daripada jumlah yang telah dibayarkan sebelumnya.

Intellectual Property Law and Maintaining Mutual Solutions v.02

The scarcity of the world is not of time nor energy but of mutual solutions.
I believe so, and that's why I support the culture of giving back to the sources of solutions. Including authors of softwares, musics, and movies.
And now I have another peace with the idea of Intellectual Property.

When comes to solutions we must talk about 2 other things:
1. Who or What is the source of the solutions
2. How to maintain the level of availability of the solutions
3. How to keep on having relevant solutions available

Intellectual property wants to maintain the level of availability of mutual solutions in reality, not only it encourages payment to sources of solutions, but also it accomodates the source of the solutions to dictate how the solutions were used. In my view this serve the purpose of maintaining the solutions.

So the payment and the licenses we adhere to is not only for the sake of giving thanks to the source of solutions, but also direct action in maintaining the level of availability of the solutions.
In short, we pay to the source, as well as the maintainer.

Therefore I propose a system that might be used in alternative to Intellectual property. Besides the Golden Sticker,
there should also be an account for the maintainers of the solutions.
Intellectual property law doesn't separate these two, I think it will be useful to separate these accounts.

Therefore everytime one is putting himself outthere, people would look at his/her profile and see whether or not this guy have paid to the sources of solutions and the maintainers of the solutions.
If it shows that the person doesn't prioritizing on giving thanks and maintaining mutual solutions, people would prioritize him/her less in business. Naturally this is only appropriate because the scarcity of the world is not of time nor energy nor money but of mutual solutions.
