Thoughts On Kickstarter? is used to help"fund and follow creativity"
All Hope Is Gone

It really started getting publicity after Tim Schafer put up a Kickstarter for
an as of yet unnamed project; he soon received over 3 million dollars in
2Marilyn Manson
Portrait Of An American Family

Now many bands, especially electronic groups, are considering using the
site; it seems like a logical thing to do.
3A Perfect Circle
Mer de Noms

I take issue with the amount of money being asked however, for those who
are into the current dubstep scene Figure, a man known for releasing his
tracks free of charge, put up a Kickstarter for a new album. Having only put
out singles this came as big news, the issue lies with the amount being
asked for.
4Nine Inch Nails
The Fragile

He wanted $15,000 for a new album. A man who has produced and
released many of his hit singles for free wanted $15,000 for an album that
he would write himself, just like his singles, and then more than likely sell to
the public.

So other than the issue of consumers buying a product they helped pay for,
in a literal non-tax payer way, why is this much money needed for
something the man can obviously do the majority of by himself?
