BitTorrent literally wants to give you money for your music/art

Do you believe in magic? BitTorrent hopes you do, because they’re just giving out goddamn $$$ to artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, and other creative types with uncompromising vision and a desire for WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION. No, this is not a dream. It is reality. The file-sharing wizards have cooked up something wondrous in their enchanted cauldron, and it is… the Discovery Fund.

Basically, BitTorrent is awarding up to $100,000 each to over two dozen artists for marketing and promotional purposes. They’ve got a rolling application system, which you can read about here. Straith Schreder, VP of Creative Initiatives at BitTorrent, had this to say about the program: “The rules are simple. You make something awesome. You own it. We back it, and help you find a global audience for your big idea.” Schreder adds, “However, as in most fairy stories revolving around remarkable gifts, you must give us something in return. Your youth… your beauty… your firstborn child. Mwa ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!” (Note: The last section of quoted dialogue is fake, and we are sure Schreder is a very nice individual.)
