Great news and excellent political move Tom. I truly hope that Newgrounds is represented accurately in the history of the interbuttZz for it's efforts against censorship and copyright laws.
Newgrounds is the one website that I tell my friends is cool NOT just because of the hilarious creative content (although there's a lot of that) but, for the philosophical actions that the Administrators have made over the years.
I mostly blab to them about how Newgrounds has not sold out to larger corporations like Fox/Ebaums although it's a competitive top 500 (100?) website and could probably use that cash to hire a larger team to produce projects in a faster time (lol, layout redesign).
Additionally, I speak to them about the concept underlying Newgrounds. The "everything, by everyone" concept that is the sites slogan. The slogan represents an effort in producing quality media together that was entirely made by independent artists. Everyone helps everyone out with producing a truly independent piece web content. By doing this the creators by-pass any copyright legal issues and at the same time give exposure to the artists that made it. And in an ideal world this exposure would lead to the artist obtaining financially sustaining jobs. Jobs that are ultimately their creative passion (lolcock jokes).
By embracing this blackout situation you've added another reason to my list, give Newgrounds more street-cred, and give all of us another reason to continue supporting Newgrounds!
SO Thanks Tom!
