The act of taking an existing DAC/Application/Smart contract that redistribute some part of its revenues to a set of shareholder addresses, and forking it to the equivalent application without "owners". The fork will use 100% of its income for productive actions and maintenance costs, turning it into a non-profit, and making it de-facto more competitive than upstream.

Example : A lottery system reversing 1% of the bets to the developer address or to some shareholders might be emancipated to redistribute 100% of bets to winners (minus book-keeping costs) with no loss of functionality and net profit for users.

Serial emancipators will be developers worst nightmare and users heroes.

    Three hurrahs for the users, and the emancipators!

    Still, you can say the same about copyright, emancipators being DRM breakers, leaks, and seeders. Although i feel we should reject restriction of things that are costlessly copied, they arent costlessly created. You also have to try help ensure some people can earn a living making the things.

    Really, i doubt 'donation' to open source is the right word. In part open source is against the restrictions 'pay for' to get around.
