So your worried that your animations might be posted on some other site uncredited. Maybe you want viewers on Youtube and other sites to realize that your animations don't belong on Youtube, but that it belongs on Newgrounds. The Newgrounds Watermarks will help prevent these problems.
Several NG Users are also upset about content from Newgrounds being taken and placed on Youtube uncredited. The Artist who brought the most attention to this issue was Egoraptor.
So I put together Newgrounds Watermarks to help prevent this problem. Now I know this isn't going to fully prevent "Rippers" from stealing the animations, but it will hopefully make people realize that "Hey, I love this person's work maybe I should go visit Newgrounds to see more". Or something on those lines because I am pretty sick and tried of seeing people stealing animations then posting it on Youtube without crediting anyone.
Is it efficient?
The NG Watermarks are transparent, but visible and you'll be able to see and enjoy the animations without being distracted by them.
My Watermarks have been used in several animations of my own and others.
Did you kill that
Oooo A Tankie
You can even Tint these NG Watermarks and it will still be in good quality.
The NG Watermarks credits go to Newgrounds of course because I used the NG graphics. I am going to admit these aren't hard to create. I've seen some artists use watermarks in their animations.
Most recent animation I recall having a watermark was Another Day 8
I have placed a tutorial in the .fla files on how to use them and what happens if I am using a black background.

Come guys help support. Newgrounds content shouldn't be on Youtube!

Questions and Answers
Q: Why did you post this on the forums if you posted it in a New posts.
A: Well some NG users really don't look in the Flash Forums
Q: I still think the best method is to make a blacklist of URLs and make a code.
A: Hey, If that is best for you be my guest.
AS: Copy Protection
AS: Specific Anti-Theft Protection
Q: How do you suppose you'll stop people from decompiling and just taking it out?
A: Right now most of the rippers are lazy or don't know how to do that, but I'll try to figure out something.
Q: What keeps people from uploading it with the watermark in there?
A: Nothing really, but what it will do is make people realize that "Hey, I love this person's work maybe I should go visit Newgrounds to see more". The Watermarks are there tell Youtube users that this movie belongs on Newgrounds and gives them the hint that if you wanna see more. Visit Newgrounds.
Q: What happens if you use it in a Black Background
A: It is explained in the .fla file and you can just tint the symbol."
Q: Anyone knows how to watermark"
A: Yeah, of course although this would help keep watermarks consistent and the graphic symbols in my watermarks aren't alpha through the symbol, but rather the color itself so you can still use tint, brightness, and all those other Color options.
Q: Rippers use video capturing cameras that let you choose what part of your screen you want to record.
A: Not many people want to see partly cutoff animations.
Q: I say put your contact info, website as well as a link to Newgrounds at the beginning and at the end of the animation.
A: Rippers would just take those parts out!
Q: I hate the way the watermark is position and where it is located
A: You can change the position of the watermark and location.
