$100 Million ‘Grant for the Web’ Aims to Restore Privacy by Reinventing the Internet Business Model

The Infinite Brief
Nonprofit Mozilla, licensing group Creative Commons and content-monetization company Coil announced the Grant for the Web, offering to fund projects that propose alternatives to the internet’s ad-tracking business model.

The grant looks to distribute $100 million over the next five years to projects with feasible plans for protecting privacy while letting content creators profit online.

Half the grant will go to open-source projects.

Part of the grant’s goal is to fund different approaches to a privacy-driven economy online, and provide advice and input on how to make them successful.
