My friend, Bradley Kuhn, a longtime activist on behalf of free software and copyleft, has started using Gratipay to accept personal donations.
If he reaches a sustainable level of $800/month, he’ll be able to continue his work without interruption for paid software development side-gigs.
I, for one, am truly grateful for the years of work Bradley has devoted to these causes, and hope he will reach a figure 10x that in recognition of the expertise he brings to bear in this area if nothing else.
Meanwhile, if you’ve read this far, check out the free tutorial book he is writing and editing on GPL Compliance: http://ebb.org/bkuhn/articles/copyleft-book.pdf
