you know what i think they need to do, is find every single person who is listening to a song right now that was not made by themselves and sue the bejeesus out of them! *sarcasm* *grumble grumble* Tom...I know how hard it must be to have all these big bad music companies and whatnot after you...but something...i dont know what, has to be done about this. Are you telling me that all of us animators from now on are pretty much going to have to A: go back and re-do all the songs in all of our movies, and B: use songs that are either like underground, non-big media, or use songs from the audio portal?
newgrounds is "riddled" per se with hundreds apon thousands of big commercial songs...and its not like these bastard thick headed media tycoons are gonna listen when you tell them that there is no possible way to tell everyone on the site to change the music in their songs >_<.. As long as the portal is automated, flashes with commercial songs will always be submitted. I mean fuck, im not sure how much money you make off of this site per month/week off of advertising alone, but considering as how the banner over the portal says "advertise in this space for as little as 20$" it cant be that much, and were not talking about a fine, were talking royalties!! does that mean eminem is going to personally go through every movie on this site, and sue you for every movie he finds with a song he sung (and...maybe...wrote. lol)
theres not a whole lot a little voice like mine can do exept bitch about it and it sucks...i come on now!!!newgrounds is a somewhat small company, sure, lots of people come to this site, but its just like fuck off! Do they really need that extra tiny little bit of cash?! how the hell do these bastards sleep at night...gah..too much to think about...tom, i bid you good luck in your quest to slay these media demons. newgrounds has always prided itself on the ability to slip through most cracks when it comes to royalties and infringment and whatnot. Now these big bad bastards want to sue you for more than you probably make already...god dammit...this is the problem with america.
chrispys thought? The pen is mightier than the sword, as the saying goes. The power of suggestion cannot be ignored, WHEN ITS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR NOSE.
(hey that rhymes)
oh yeah and btw...maybe this is a longshot, but doesnt tom kind of look like spike? ^.^
