GET THE BUNDLE: http://www.commonly.cc
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!



This is an insteresting idea, but i think that it's more an utopia than a really realizable thing.

really well done, and thanks for the heads up about this project def going to go and check it out!

Good animation and execution, this is a very powerful concept, I think this should be possible, although I think the artist may monitor what happens to his/her/their work. Maybe the source code should be allowed to only coders/copyrighted/permission from creator. So OP idea, needs moderation.

Half a star for effort.
Not worth 10,000$
This helps with nothing against copyrighting, it just seems like you are using people against all the copyright crap going on to scam people into paying you money..
"OMG internet is like a zoo now! Pay us 10,000$ to get stuff.."
I really don't get where you are going with this.
Only way I see this working would be "making the money before we release the videos, games, ext.. to the public" but they are already out there (other then the source code).
So I don't know I just don't see this as necessary at all and just a way to get money off people.

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)
