Hrm... bought by the same guy in the Alien Hominid console project, O~3 Entertainment.
Also, a quick note: "exclusive worldwide licensing rights" is exactly what it sounds like. No, not "some confusing copyright crap I dont need to know about", but it means that they are the only person who can use creativity, until the end of the deal.
I think you misread the article - O~3 is the publisher for Alien Hominid, but they have no involvement in the Johnny Rocketfingers deal. The article just references AH as another Flash game coming to consoles.
I agree with the rest of your post, however. It's exciting to have people showing interest in Flash, but Flash authors need to be careful who they are dealing with. When Hollywood types come after a property, they WANT IT ALL and they want the creator to have NONE. It's their job to make that happen. :)
