This is truly a theft of my property, and very rude!

Pitch This is truly a theft of my property, and very rude!

My artwork about the shooting down of Ukrainian passenger plane (Flight 752)was printed in Etemad newspaper, yesterday. (One of the famous newspapers in Tehran).

It is an artwork in solidarity with the families of the victims and the unfortunate and struggling Iranian people, but the Iranian regime took advantage of my solidarity by using my illustration to their own advantage. That is rude and evil. http://www.etemadnewspaper.ir/fa/main/page/1465/16/%D8%B5%D9%81%D8%AD%D9%87-%D8%A2%D8%AE%D8%B1?fbclid=IwAR2Hd5NCmW7ZwMiY5bSo2po7TCBCvCtVL4JI5z9Bj0xUgeaRzjTaKZjOf1Y

Sadly

A sad reality there dear Javad.

I'm sorry for what happened to you
I worked with this newspaper a few years ago
The newspaper's editor dismissed all the cartoonists on the pretext of cartoon quality!!
Since the day we were fired, he has published illegal cartoons of cartoonists around the world.
We do not have a proper press law in Iran
Unfortunately, the Iranian press does not have mercy on its cartoonists

I agree with you dear SWAHA, Watermarks are the best way!.

This really sucks. When you put your energy and time into a drawing and find out some media abused your rights. Watermarks are the best way, imho. It can be done in a light shade, without looking too ugly.

I will talk about this issue with our developer. Personally, I am not a big fan of a watermark; to prevent people from using images they need to be really big and ugly which will make the website less appealing to our audience, (One solution could be to add a small(er) CM logo watermark; that would not prevent stealing, but at least it would be clear it's from CM.

The other protection that I know of is disabling the right-click save option, but adding a swap-image function when people go over it with their mouse (so they see a copyright notice if they go over the picture with the cursor. This might prevent some theft, but does not prevent people making a screenshot and cropping the cartoon.

Look at this website too: https://cinereverso.org/tag/notas-graficas-de-la-semana/

@NEMO and all: I think that the idea of a watermark could be a good solution.

13 Jan 2020

Tjeerd said he planned to do something soon with the site, maybe that could be included.

What do you think of that Tjeerd?

13 Jan 2020

@ NEMØ...Yes, I agree with your initiative, we can choose between them and put it to a vote at the end:

13 Jan 2020

but more seriously, this must be the second time i suggest these two solutions we could chose from, put it to vote eventually:
A. Discreet: i'm no programmer, but some images are PROTECTED, can't be copied from the page,
B. Intrusive: having a watermark automatically stamped over

(put me in charge of that and i could get it done by pros in no time...)

13 Jan 2020

you could drone bomb the paper, haha

13 Jan 2020

I am sorry guys, but there really isn't much we can do in these cases. They take lo-res images from our site, and usually do not respond to our messages. If they don't take it from CM, they'll take it from other sites or social media.

13 Jan 2020

What is the solution by the editor-in-chief of CM?.

13 Jan 2020

the link there has virtually cartoons from everybody on Cartoonmovement and from other sites + they even manage to mix pieces from one cartoonist with pieces from another one. it's really weird.

Indeed, journalism in the Middle East ... there is no professional journalism, it is a yellow press that relies on the networks of personal relationships or party affiliations or is supported by the intelligence services.

you and everybody else
Here for example:
http://iuvmarchive.com/en/category/cartoon
" About us: This website is a complete resource of archives for the best and most EXCLUSIVE graphics and videos related to Muslim world and Islamic resistance. This website is being collected and the matically categorized from scattered published texts by its executive team of MONKEYS for easy and seamless access of users of our website.

from bloggers, it can be expected and they don't have mass reading (little money, no money)
but from newspapers... mideast papers seem to do that a lot
