I've been thinking a lot about a repository for Blender-models / 
materials etc. with a flexible license-system. The idea would be that 
artists could upload their models and select a license from a choice of 
premade licenses to add to them (like "public domain", "open content 
license", even commercial licenses etc.). Add in some rating system a 
good searchability and this might become on of the hotspots of 

By adding a shopping-system to this it might be an alternative to sites 
like turbosquid revolving exclusively around blender, something I could 
really use.
