BitTorrent announced today its plan to expand its Bundle model. This newer form of payout will now be excepting a multitude of other entrants; including: "Art, Books, Comedy, Film, Music, Software or Other," according to Music Week.

On the move, BitTorrent Director of Content Strategy Straith Schreder says, "Our goal is to make paygates available to all artists. We believe art has value; we want everyone to have the ability to sell their work direct-to-fan using Bundle.

As with the rollout of the self-publish email gate feature in September 2013," he continues, "we’re greenlighting paygates in batches. This allows us to QA the platform, and make sure that each publisher is properly set up. We want the paygate experience to be the best possible one for creators and their fans."

According to TechCrunch, artists still must pay the processing fee for the "Premium Content Bundles." Which, overall, amounts to five percent of the final profit. Aside from those fees, however, BitTorrent is only taking 10 percent of the artists overall profits - the rest going back directly to the creators.

Schreder added on; "This is a much better deal for artists." ... "For one, it’s transparent. Other sales and streaming platforms have come under attack for failing to disclose the deals they’ve made with labels. While Spotify has claimed to pay 70% of their revenue to rights-holders, public statements by artists, including Taylor Swift, indicate that little of that money is actually making it back to the people making the songs.

For another, it’s sustainable. Platforms like iTunes take up to 40% of sales revenue – without disclosing fan contact information or data. Which means that, as an artist, you have no idea who’s buying your work, and how to reach them. To deprive artists of this data is to deprive them of the ability to build a viable business."

Several weeks back Thom Yorke released his surprise solo LP Tomorrow's Modern Boxes via BitTorrent's Bundle model, selling 4.4 million downloads. This model of astounding success was soon followed up by Diplo, who released his first official solo LP Florida for a meagre $5.
