This post-copyright campaign ends soon, on July 15!

Pay What You Want for art & music from:
1. HalcyonicFalconX, musician of the Epic Battle Fantasy series.
2. Jimp, artist of the Sushi Cat series.
3. NutcaseNightmare, creator of the :The Game: series.
4. Stratkat, whose music was featured in Beat Hazard Ultra.
5. Kenney, artist of Armor Picross.
6. Mindchamber, artist of Newgrounds Rumble.

Furthermore, if we hit our goal of $10000, after the campaign ends on July 15, everything in the bundle will automatically be released to the public domain. You can, of course, still pay to get instant access to the bundle, rather than waiting, if you so choose.

This is an experiment.

No matter what happens, hopefully this will push more people to try funding our creative commons!

Clever scam, nice try.
So, in a world without copyright, i can just rip off your entire game, call it differently and upload it on NG as it was my idea and my creation?

That means i could even get THIS particular animation, and upload it, so the people would be donating to me for content that isnt mine instead of you.

Let's experiment, everyone reading this, if you can, rip off this scam and upload it to NG right now, let's see what they do.
(PS: i'm really disappointed by you , HalcyonicFalconX)

I hope this was satire of some form cause your message is stupid. Down with copyright? You're either really stupid, or...... screw it, you're really stupid.

It's a decent ideal to have, but ultimately, I don't think we're ready for it. Copyright may be a political and legal thing now, but it's still necessary. In time, the world may be ready for it, but it's still a long time coming.

Good animation though.

I sincerely don't think you guys are going to raise $10,000 for this. I didn't even really know what this was advertising. If I pay you money, I get to use your music and art in my own work? Why would I use your stuff when I could simply make my own?

It seems like all I'd be getting out of this is ripped off. You want to raise money? Go to Kickstarter. Offer me something valuable, like I dunno... a playable download of your previous games. I don't see any value in some ABC sprites and source code for a program I don't use or own, coupled with some unoriginal background music.

I too am an artist (not a good one but still an artist) and I only use copyright to keep people from claiming my works as theirs, as well as using my characters in ways that I wouldn't approve of. The plain fact is that we need copyright because their's a lot of people out there we can't trust. Copyrights can include allowing remixing and use in paid works, usually it would require the owner's permission, but we still have the basic freedoms you guys want. While it would be nice to not need copyrights, the net would be chaotic without it.
