“Fair Use” & Philanthropy Frame Startup Online Publisher
November 8, 2006
Startup online publisher YzGuide, Inc. opened for business today, combining a commitment to “fair use” of their content with support for organizations that feed the hungry and help the homeless.
Prior to logging their first sale, YzGuide (pronounced “Wise Guide”) made donations to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey (www.njfoodbank.org) and the Moravian Open Door (http://www.geocities.com/moravianopendoor/ ) to underscore their commitment. 10% of their quarterly net profits will also be donated to charity, with these two organizations each receiving 5% until the company grows large enough to provide meaningful support to additional organizations.
For only $3.99, smart, busy people can download individual “YzGuides” on personal and business achievement to help them rapidly conquer new challenges. The download is a “zip” file containing an HTML document for viewing on a computer/PDA or printing, and a computer-generated MP3 audio file of the work for listening via your computer, MP3 player or iPod. The files are not copy protected to facilitate “fair use” by YzGuide customers. The company believes their target market of smart, busy people will find sufficient value in both the “YzGuides” and the supported charities to purchase, rather than pirate, the products.
“YzGuides” on “Permanent Weight Loss” and “Vertical Market Penetration” (an aspect of B2B marketing) are available immediately, with additional titles in the pipeline. The Spanish language versions of the initial titles will be available by 10/20, and future titles will be released concurrently in Spanish and English.
