  • New Monthly Feature: The List

    New Monthly Feature: The List

    Media love using cartoons, and most of them pay a (albeit often modest) republication fee. But every month we track down media that use our cartoons without asking for permission, let alone offer compensation. We take action in every case of copyright infringement, because we feel it’s important to point out that cartoons are made by professionals and thus aren’t free. Now we also publish a list of them every month on our blog.
