Here on Newgrounds? Just thought I would ask the simple question, seeing as it's pretty common on a lot of other art sites.
Hard to say. I'd just assume that art theft is generally not as common on this website because NG does not have a comparable traffic density to that of deviantart... But on the other hand, flash movies are ripped off of the site all the time. I would have no idea.
It is the responsibility of the artist to take all possible necessary pre-cautions to prevent others from claiming ownership of their work. The artist has the benefit of the doubt but it's too easy to simply drag and drop a picture from the site to the desktop.
