Earlier this year, a patent troll sued podcasters Adam Carolla and How Stuff Works and they've threatened dozens of other top podcasters with questionable, expensive lawsuits too. Congress has instituted a bill called the SHIELD Act to stop these patent trolls from taking advantage of content creators, and if you're a fan of any podcasts at all – or a podcaster yourself, you can head over to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to send a message to your representative to support the bill so that we can stop this bullshit before it starts to affect (and potentially shut down) your favorite shows.
How It Works
Splitsider Presents is a digital comedy store selling great comedy directly to you. There are no hoops to jump through, and you don't need to hand over your identity. Buying is simple and straightforward; you don't need a credit card or an existing account. You can complete payment and be watching a show in seconds, choosing to pay via either Amazon or Paypal.
Splitsider keeps only 20% of the cost of the purchase after transaction, bandwidth and legal costs, with about 70% going directly to the artist.
You can stream your purchases on whatever device you like, or download them to your computer to keep forever in DRM-free file formats.
For $5 you get 5 HD or SD DRM-free downloads and 3 streams, allowing you to watch on your computer or any other device. You can choose to pay via either Amazon or PayPal, and you'll be able to log into the site whenever you want to re-download or stream your purchases.
