Kindle 2 Sleep Backgrounds (Screensavers)

Now that it's been made available after a little bit of tinkering by clarknova (THANKS!), I thought this would be a good place to share sleep backgrounds.

Here's my collection which are a bunch of Nintendo related old-school box art and screen shots from title-screens and some in-game images. Of note are a couple stages of Super Mario Bros. that I've found the maps for, and cut them into a nice 600x800 picture ala below:



Anyways, share alike!


**updated 2009/03/05 - brightened images up, and added ingame screenshots and title screen shots of a lot of games **

My poor family. My kindle used to be: wife, son, daughter, repeat. Now it's: wife, Mario Bros. lvl 1-1, son, Mario Bros. lvl 1-2, daughter, arkanoid lvl 1...

Nice work!

These are free (no cost) to be distributed, fair use screenshots of video games. There are hundreds if not thousands on wikipedia, and you can read their justification & rationale here:

That's interesting, but this is not Wikipedia, and we have a strict policy of not hosting or linking to copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

That was the rationale for why it's fair use, geez. You don't even live in the United States. Maybe it's different over there, but our Supreme Court has given fair use pretty broad standard and test case.

This is a world wide forum, unrequited, not just for the US. Harry and the other mods have to be VERY careful of what is posted here. Thats why he questioned your posts.
