This will seriously impact the community of music video creators, of which I consider myself one.

I do agree that music artists should be paid for their hard work, but if the animator doesn't load it up with flash ads and doesn't make any money off his/her own hard work, how can anyone complain? I also agree that the audio portal contains hundreds of purely talented individuals, but sometimes there is a limit to free talent; if a person is talented enough, they'll want to get paid for it and won't give it away for free.

I guess the only option is to seek permission for every music video I ever do, like I did for my current project I'm working on (slowly). I got the permission for the music, but now I'm worried because I'm using loose versions of copyrighted characters in the animation. Here's hoping I can call in parody. *fingers crossed*

This is actually a total downer for me, not to say that I didn't expect it at all...

I've been working on this animation for a while containing tons of music from all sorts of soundtracks, which I have been accumulating for probably most of my life (my soundtracks playlist is just over 2.4k songs). I guess I'll have to scrap that then, what a waste. However I need to honor the code

:(

I didn't hear any music or nature sounds in here, unless you meant the lightning sounds, which I think are you. :)

But anyone who is really serious about animating should consider buying a CD with ambient sounds such as storms, wind, oceans, etc... There are a lot of cheap CDs for that sort of thing, in fact this would be a good project for the Wiki. Ultimately we should also gather up as many free resources as we can.

Thanks for a solid warning to the community Tom, in the long run you're doing all the artists here a favor.
I like the idea of making my own content for the whole peice anyway, Happy Harry knows what's up.

I feel for animators this will be kinda a rough change immediately, but itll ultimately be for the betterment.

Also a job search feature would be great. http://wooshii.com has a system style that NG people could take advantage of. Im not saying copying them, but some method of getting artists, musicians, etc. connected with people who want to purchase their creative content.

I think the Newgrounds free sound bank hinted at on page 1 is a flipping good idea.

Well, it could be worse. Anybody remember what happenned to Youtube where all videos featuring licensed songs needed the song removed or the video will be removed?

I feel like I'm not so in touch with the Audio or even the Art Portal as I should be. I'll definitely look for audio tracks for my future projects from there, and maybe ask an artist if he'd be interested in drawing a menu or something. Couldn't hurt. After all, the users of this site aren't faceless, penny-pinching corporations.


I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

What will you do about pedophilia art and video portal entries? Are you going to take care of chronically abusive members as well or is this just a copyright thing?

wow... Copyright laws nowadays... why can't they just understand that we want to borrow their work to improve ours...so that's like promoting theirs in a way.

Sorry i haven't made any submissions, but not everybody is as artistically gitfed as other or have full knowlege of computation since my school cut it when we were studying powerpoint...for the 4th time.At least i try to protect our rights. I dont know from where this attack comes from, since i haven't attacked the newground team. I just found it outrageous that this site was targeted for copyright when there is no reason for it, i mean can we download copyrighted music here? No, Films? No, So why now Tom comes with this announcement? If some one uses a song then it usually just a part of it or if it the full song the flash is a music video.
Oh well, next i'm just gonna shut up when someone starts walking over me or SOMETHING I CARE FOR.

Well shit. I was planning on making a game based on the stylings of Caravan Palace, with original sounds, graphics and all that jazz, designing everything around the songs, but now I guess that's not possible. I doubt any other soundtrack would truly do for what I was planning, so I'm still hoping it's somewhat acceptable for me to submit it when it's finished.

So does this mean the entire Radiohead collection is gonna be taken down?

Just because you can't 'download' copyrighted music from NG doesn't mean the users are allowed to upload things with work they don't have a license or permission to use. There's no reason to get into a tizzy about a law that's been around since probably before the internet itself, let alone NG.

And protect your rights? You don't have a right that allows you to publicly use copyrighted work when it's not in the realm of 'fair use'.

I'm pretty sure no amount of bitching on a forum will change that.

I'm way too far along my current sprite project to just walk away from it now, but yeah I guess this makes sense.

I'll just keep doing what I'm doing though, doesn't really effect me, since I never hardly ever make anything anymore.

Maybe because you have no idea what you are ranting about. No ones stopping anyone from doing anything. Just don't expect to make MONEY from something you've created using COPYRIGHTED materials.. Thats so hard to understand? Apparently it is for you.
I just wanted to make sure people knew you had nothing to contribute less they mistaken you for an artist who actually knows whats going on.

This would be a very good idea also because one: the flash artist gets the content they want and two: the music can then be altered to the flash artists needs in any etra ways past the cover version to begin with. Thus the flash artist wouldn't have to make due with any of the problems and/or issues of the original work.

Copyrights suck. I'd like to take this time to plug the movie RIP: A Remix Manifesto
It's a brilliant documentary about Remix artist Girl Talk and how corporations have patented ideas and are taking things too far. The movie is free to download and you can donate what you want.
