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)

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.

"We want a FREE web without copyright! So we will release all our stuff for free if you pay us 10000 dollars!" I sense hypocrisy. Copyright is a means for artists to maintain themselves at the very least. I don't know what your weird ideal or experience in the matter is, but what you are doing here is selling off your mediocre bundle to the public domain under the pretense of "revolutionising" the web. If anything this is a way for you to get more money out of your poor-earning past "art" by rebranding it as a liberal movement. Also, I didn't know advertising was allowed on NewGrounds.

I was originally going to give this no stars, but then I realized that even a con artist deserves credit, especially when his work is done in a unique manner. Don't get me wrong, I'm not insulting you as creators, I'm merely saddened, no disappointed with how you are trying to raise money for "worthy causes", which you forgot to mention was your own back pockets. I can understand the meaning behind the flash, obviously copyright these days can get out of hand, but there's a reason for it. It's not simply placed to build a wall between developers/artists and the community, it's there so those people can actually earn credit, respect and in the long run money for their creations which I'm sure they put a lot of love and effort into making. Also this is in no way a close comparison or a combination of Kickstarter and The Humble Bundle. The Humble Bundle generates money for charity, as well as for itself and developers. Kickstarter enables inventors with amazing ideas to get them produced and put on the shelf. You are simply selling your merchandise with a false message, and once you've earned a fixed income you're giving it away. These are just my opinions, but reading through the reviews many others seem to think the same. I like everyone in this group, I just don't like what the group stands for.

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.
