Project specific donations

I agree about the fact that there seem to be a lot of good artists 
willing to carry on the tradition of starving artists.

But we're still happy to discuss affiliating with SPI. Essentially, we 
manage money for your project and spend it at your project's direction. 
It's not our job to tell you what is and is not a good use of money 
collected. We don't want your project doing anything that could endanger 
SPI and its other affiliate projects. We could potentially lose assets 
and copyrights we hold in a lawsuit, etc. I once got in trouble with 
SPI's then-counsel regarding an event in which I was going to 
deliberately violate DMCA on stage. If you're going to do that sort of 
stuff, make sure you can't be construed as representing SPI when you do it.
