What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.

I know this should be in Music but I ask…
Some Kongregate and Newgrounds Flash has copy-righted music. Do you think we should delete the flash?
I hate the law of copy-righted music but even so, we have to abide by it. For me, if there is some Shakira or Mika song that has no permission from the musician or the publisher, delete (Or in the case of NG, blow da whistle!).
Hmm lets see, i would think that if its copy-righted and you dont have permission then it should be deleted. Only god knows what would happen if just that “one” person saw there own music on here and got angry about it.
erm, there is not such thing as “un-copyrighted” music. that wouldn’t even make sense… you create original music, you automatically have the copyright for it [unless its work for hire, in which case copyright is with the party hiring]. there is only music where the owner(s) of the copyright refrain from enforcing their rights AND furthermore allow others to make use of their original work of art without monetary compensation.
i guess that is what you mean with “free and un-copyrighted music”.
laws about this differ from country to country, but in general kongregate should make clear [and i’m damn sure that they are making it clear] that they accept submissions on bias that all copyrights are held by submitter. additionally i would advise kongregate and its community to draw attention to material where copyrights might not have been cleared adequately, going so far as to remove such entries [even when in doubt].
save you a lot of hassle, trust me.
Well, some game sites like Miniclip.com offer their games to other people. Say, N Game which is free-to-share and free-to-upload (Except Kongregate).
Copyrighted crap comes in three varieties, Creative Commons (Which you always see on Wikimedia), Self-Copyright-ism, and commercial purposes.
