Cruxy Proudly Supports Democracy

January 13th, 2007 by Dean Jansen

Cruxy is a video marketplace that allows producers to create and sell both single videos and RSS subscriptions. The cool thing about Cruxy is that none of their videos include DRM.

Instead of locking you into a specific desktop player or device, Cruxy gives you some choice and freedom with how and where to receive and play your media. You always have access to directly download the original media file created by the artist in the format they choose and that media file is yours forever. That is what DRM-free means.

In a recent blog post, the creators of Cruxy highlighted Democracy as a great way to subscribe to, download, and watch Cruxy video feeds.

    Maybe there should be a name for DRM-free media formats. The way we call software open-source, it’s a rallying name for good quality, good intent software.

    Maybe open-content? That sounds free though, and there’s nothing wrong with charging for it, just making it DRM’ed is a bad thing.

    Something more meaningful would be good. Instead of something reactionary.

    A random thought. Just passing through.

    Thanks for the random thought, Tim.

    I agree that a name (along with a set of requirements) for non-DRMed media would be great.

    Your suggestion makes me think of Benjamin Mako Hill. Here is a somewhat related article he recently wrote: http://mako.cc/copyrighteous/ip/20070104-00

Looking for something?
