Yes, a noble reason. Playing locally instead of online reduces
bandwidth demand. More kids can play.

Ah, thanks for that. Until now I thought you had written them,
because that's how activities.sugarlabs.org presented them.

Can you tell me exactly where you downloaded it from? You see, I'm
having trouble finding where, because there are so many versions.
Once I find out where, I can discover the license.

I'll avoid the culture issue, since we are not homogenous, and stick
to the copyright and license issue.
As far as I can see, you have downloaded the .swf files and attached
the GPLv3+ license to the bundle. You also wrote some really cool
Python code to run Gnash, and you licensed that code as GPLv2+; your
name is on the top line.
Since you did these things, you're responsible for taking them down as
much as anyone. ;-)
Here's the details of the two files;
Kunfu.swf, but no Kunfu.fla
Kunfu.activity/README.txt says (C)kunfu,
Screenshot says "Legend of the Dragon Fist", and "A Ben Olding Game -
www.benolding.co.uk". I've written to Ben to check the license.
http://www.bikerchicks4u.com/games/game/358/ has the same md5sum and size.
Football.swf, and Football.fla has a "Saved by Adobe Flash Windows 9.0
build 494 timecount = 1241204734" tag, which could be 2nd May 2009.
README.txt says EatBoom.FLA developed by Innovations for Learning
The same README.txt file is in EatBoom-2 uploaded by Wade Brainerd.
Actually, EatBoom.fla is the same file as Football.fla.
I've not been able to find an online source of Football.swf; too many
I've marked both activities as disabled in activities.sugarlabs.org
until we can resolve this license issue. Thanks for your patience,
and please continue to discuss.
EatBoom-2 does properly credit an author that isn't Wade.
