The Bandcamp example seems obvious:
For instance, “giving money to be added to some abstract database so I can access some digital content like a chump” could just as easily describe buying an album on Bandcamp. When you pay £7.99 for that album, how do you think the site knows to retain your access to it, as well as opening up a channel for you to download the files at your leisure? Probably by putting you on some sort of register.
Lots more stuff on music and fundraising drives and so on. A good read!
