Back to the question at hand, from an artists point of view yes i do think there should be a no post list. Why? Because it is the choice of the owner/creator to decide what he shares, some artists take an income from their work and wish to have it keeps its value. And with value in mind if you give something away you will find that those you give it too assign that item with no real value, they are of the opinion it was free so it must be worth nothing.

But as an artist with a paysite i tend to be of the mind that honestly this is the internet and eventually everything can be found out there for free. So generally i am very easy about my own work and its copyright. Yes there are people who incur my wrath and the site administrators but the ones i pick on are those that are trying to earn an income off of my hard work(for nothing). I have had my site ripped more than a few times but as i update regularly there is always something new.
The upside to this is getting your work out there letting see what you can do and as a result it becomes free advertising for both the paysite and commission work. Its a fine line which i think i am on the right side of. But who i am i to say the value of another artists work?

Well said, blackheart. Now I'll tell you all something someone told me long ago: the artists, generally, trade their rights with the publisher when they start their contracts, so the royalties earned with paid material doesn't go to the artist, but to the publisher (books, music, you name it)

Only the really strong ones, with good bargaining positions, can opt for a royalty for issue sold, and then it's a mix: a fixed, one time payment for the royalties, and a yearly liquidation for issues sold. Remember, that is only in the topmost ones. So they told me...

honestly i have found that its a lot more open on the interweb thingy a lot of places will do the admin and site work, you do the artwork and just get a cut per member, the better the artist the better the percentage. But then again i am but small fry. Also if you look at it like once the server space is paid for and the site is built its just a case of minor site admin and taking the money.
