A Change In The Licencing!!! 2008-03-15 17:51:42
Has anyone noticed this? The Licensing Terms listed under our songs no longer say non-commercial. They used to, but now if you look at the Licencing terms section they now just say Attribution and Share Alike, and if you click on it it brings up this page.
Does this mean our work is now free for commercial use?
Did NG change this or was it creative commons?
Based on the creative commons legal code, our licence is now classified as a type 3 CC licence, or "Voluntary License Schemes", which makes me think this change was made by Newgrounds, and not creative commons. This new licence scheme means we sacrifice all right to royalties for our music.
As far as I know this is not legal either. We submitted our songs under a non-commercial licence, and now that licence has been changed without our consent. I mean I didn't get a letter or email asking me if it was OK to change my licence.
So now I ask the rest of you Audio artists, Are you OK with this? And what do you think should be done?
