Freed, gifting flove


Gifts are lovelier than exchanges because they leverage the need for giving some materiality back for it.

The receiver could also suspect that the gift implies a debt to the giver and refuse the gifting

Gifts that are donated with the wish to be further shared (majority of formal gifts) deserve to be specially cared, so we can work out in a system that helps you find the more ideal person for receiving such a gift,

Gift yourself better

We mainly gift to feel we are helping others but gifting is a broader act than just as a lovely offer to others.

Gifting yourself better when you gift increases the possibilities of you gifting more in the future.

Moreover, being open to receive gifts and share them further is maybe the highest act within economy. Gifts are not really gifts if there is not a receiver that welcomes it. Gifts are as valueable as the receiver wants it.

Digital things can be so abundant that the gifting of it to someone doesn’t imped gifting the same thing to another person. The public domain works quite well for these kind of abundant resources, where the former owner still retain the moral rights over the thing. The moral rights of copyright law are still useable by the former owner in the ambiguous case of reputational damages made to the original author with the free(d) modification of the original thing. When we want to use the public domain for more material and scarce things, what we are technically doing is transfering the property rights to the State.


Freed model proposes a lovely way for gifting that tackles the ambiguities of property management after gifting. By gifting freed you exagerate the declaration of completely waiving property rights over the thing.

Freed model offers you pre-loaded declarations for gifting. It also allows you to estate other non binding wishes for the future use of thing. Both of these actions can only work informally and or within a network that discourages the appeal to property formalities that will still rule (we can’t do above what the law estates).

Freed initiatives set up very wild cases about the possible uses of things. First of all, you are the one responsible of selecting an audience for your offer. All recipients of the offer will be possible propietaries of it. You would have to mind this specially and from the beginning because, actually, the first one in showing interest in it or going to get it (as you informally prefer…) will be the next legitimated full owner of it and as such, (s)he could inmediately and formally – legally cancel your license and don’t let anyone else use it anymore.

If there were attached wishes and you or further requesters were not complying with the estated wishes from the original offeror, (s)he couldn’t blame you for that, (s)he rather should keep you apart of future freed offers (s)he would make, if (s)he notices about about you and would want to act against your future interests.
