This isn't a microstock site but could be a place to sell images for micro payments.  Don't know if this idea will catch on but it might be good for us if it does.

For your further reading...

Peter Sunde, co-founder of the popular BitTorrent tracker site The Pirate Bay, has launched a new service this week aiming to revolutionize how people pay and get paid for content on the internet.

So since the pirate bay stuff was litigated, another new scheme.

The site hasn't launched yet, I doubt it will look this bad when it is launched.  Don't know if this one will work but I find the concept interesting.

That guy can bite me so hard. It's these punks that have helped fuel the younger generation feeling they are entitled to everything for free.
I would never even think of giving my details over to anything founded by the creator pirate bay. If he doesnt care about people stealing my and other creatives' intellectual property I doubt he's gonna be bothered to take care of my financial information.

I think this doesn't concern stock photography. Looks like a social network donation system where you can donate to someone offering something for free - like freeware fonts, flickr photos etc. If someone uses the stuff you offer for free they send something back.

And the person pays to be a member and click the buttons. So we can assume that the flattr site takes a percentage for operating expenses and distributes a percentage for the clicks, divided by the monthly subscription fee. I didn't see if the people who provided content were working for nothing, or will have to pay to get those Flattr clicks.

Hypothetical, you pay $10 for the month to get free content and makes clicks. You click only one site, because you want that person to get the whole pie. They get $2 and Flattr gets $8. Simple!

Make the people who run the site rich, off selling subscriptions for free material. ;)

Someone was thinking when they thought this one up. All feel good messages about sharing and liking. Just can't wait to see what they are pocketing for providing this service and love.
