*Comments: License change for Scene.org03 Mar 2005
Scene.org staff has been receiving a lot of requests to remove files from artists whose previously-uploaded works have been sold to a commercial entity. Some of these requests have been polite, few have been not so polite and then there have been down-right threatening demands with associated legal language.

As you know, Scene.org exists as an archival and distribution service for the good of the community, run & supported by the members of the community. I'm sure you understand that we do not have the resources to continue to handle these requests nor defend ourselves should someone decide to initiate legal proceedings. Thus, we are investigating options to protect ourselves without taking away any rights from the creators of the works.

Chief among these options is requiring a CC (CreativeCommons) license for all works in the archive -- both past & present.

We realize this is a major change, and thus would very much welcome any comments and suggestions from our users through the discussions area. Should you be or know someone who is legally-savvy in these matters, we would very much welcome an opportunity to consult with you directly (contact: staff@scene.org).

*Scene.org Awards 2004 nominees announced16 Feb 2005
After weeks of exhausting deliberations and votes, the official Scene.org Awards 2004 jury is once again ready to unravel the list of nominees for this year's issue, as well as the nominations in the Public choice's award, as determined through the public vote.

For the first time this year, the Jury chose to extend the nomination list in two categories (Best demo and Best direction) to propose a wider view of the contestants in those categories, in the spirit of competition and diversity.

The final results will be given during the ceremony at Breakpoint 2005, in Bingen am Rhein in Germany on the 26th of march 2005. We will be pleased to see you there. Until then, visit the Scene.org Awards website for the most up to date information.

*'The Scene Archives' collection online22 Jan 2005

The Scene Archives is a huge collection of Amiga scene material brought together thanks to the hard work of Tony Hasselbacher (aka The Heavyweight/Affinity) The complete collection spans over 10000 floppy disks of content, representing a whopping 9GB of digital artwork (assuming 880k per floppy).

Originally this collection was sold as CD volumes to allow other demoscene enthausiasts to enjoy their contents. But now the author has given The International Scene Organization ry (the organization behind scene.org) his permission to host this excellent archive online! You can find this treasure chest of amiga productions in our mirrors section.

Big thanks go out to Tony Hasselbacher for his work and support!
