Monolith is an application framework for Web applications. It provides basic widgets for labels, buttons, images, input fields, and so on. The programmer uses these to construct whole applications or reusable "super-widgets" which can be embedded in other applications, distributed, or even sold.
Monolith is a simple software tool to distribute copyrighted data without theoretically committing any copyright infringement. As the current legality of distribution of copyrighted works is quite ambiguous, the ideas presented and implemented by Monolith purport to further "[muddy] the waters of the digital copyright debate."
