Promises, promises & more promises.
Since I am Iraqi Citizen, I would Like to say that I am terribly sorry for this....
It's good for me to see my work selected in foreign countries, but also to be paid for it. Only to continue to survive, of course. So, I agree with Tjeerd and Enrico
Thanks Tjeerd, I think that this should become a standard practice for future situations like this.
Yes, Enrico, that's a good idea. Thanks for contacting them, Saad. I will also try to make them understand copyright, and the importance of this for cartoonists (at least the ones that try to make a living with cartoons).
Thanks Cecigian for the notice. I agree with you Tjeerd, you should contact this newspaper as editor of the Cartoon Movement about this evident violation of the copyright. Why don't you write a notice adding finally all the name of the authors that dosen't accept this evident abuse? It is possible?
Tjeerd....just FYI, I just called them, and tried to explained that this is not legal and they can not do this without notifying the website, but they don't understand, and they said (we did mentioned the website name, and this is good for you)....same as you said Tjeerd, no copyright in the middle east, not yet...best regards.
Thanks for sharing this, guys. It's a blatant copyright infringement; it's nice that they ay least credit, but the fact they take pictures and publish them without permission is unacceptable to me. I will contact them, for the use of my own work and CM published work to let them know we require a reprint fee if they want to publish that work. If you want I can write on behalf of you too, with regard to the work that was published without permision from the newsroom.
By the way, this seems to be a common practice at newspapers in the Middle East, to just take images and not even contact the artist that they are using them.
Question: is that legal? the good thing is they mentioned the website.
hehe, mine too (233)
