Patrons for the Public Domain

I was reading The End of Copyright By Ernest Adams today and was reminded of one of the better possible strategies for replacing copyright.

"Yet another model is the donor model: somebody who is known for creating great work can collect up donations in advance; when he has collected enough to fund the work, he builds it, and releases the game copyright-free when it’s finished."

If this Idea is expand to creating foundations that make grants to artists or creator for the purpose of making making art that is destine for the Public Domain, at the point of first publication, this would solve the problem of pay artist while simultaneously enhancing the commons. This model could also used with
Creative Commons license.
