How is art theft dealt with?

For the most part, uploading gallery images, profile avatars, and using bbcode to post images from off-site is largely handled through the honor system -- by posting, you are certifying to us that you have permission to use the art in question.

Unfortunately, this isn't always true. If we find that you are using art or images without permission, we will ask you to remove it. If you don't, we will have to remove it for you. Depending on how severe the problem is, other penalties may be taken against your account, up to and including having your account closed.
