I’m completely new to html5 game development, so I was wondering if someone could explain to me how licensing of html5 games works.
The reason I’m asking, is that I uploaded my game to Newgrounds in the hope of earning some coffee-money from ads. But to my surprise, just a couple of days later, my game was running on all kinds of game aggregator sites (with ads). I don’t mind for this first game, that other people are making some money from it, but it raises the question of how one can support oneself with html5 games.
That’s when I came across the term ‘licensing’. How do those companies prevent the games they are selling / renting out from being published all over the web ?
