Marja Wouters's insight:

Marja Wouters's comment, Today, 11:52 AMI am still very skeptical about crowdfunding becoming a factor of importance in The Netherlands. Think there will be major changes needed both in the giving culture of it's citizens as well as in the tax laws of our country. And most important: the politicians need to change their negative attitude towards the arts before anything towards a different system of investing in the arts can and will succeed.

I am also skeptical. I think it puts another burden of content creators to keep track of funds and be accountable. In Canada we have a lot of issues on Taxes and what is considered a grant versus a donation.

In response to previous comments, in any kind of funds, taxes are an issue, as are production costs to a creator. Crowdfunding allows to enlarge the basis of funders, and I am convinced it will become of great importance for institutions, and especially in France where the state disengages.
