Lavinia is a novel censorship-resistant publishing system that incentivizes document storage through the use of an anonymous, distributed, time-locked payment system. This has the advantage of allowing the publisher, as opposed to public interest or an appointed editorial board, to decide whether a document is worth storing, and for how long.

Lavinia has been developed by Cecylia Bocovich, John A. Doucette, and Ian Goldberg at the CrySP lab, David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo.
