10 Cartoons for World Water Day
New Cartoonist: S.M.J. Taheri

Questions of Copyright

Questions of copyright is a regular feature on our blog, in which we share some of our questions and concerns about how and where cartoons from Cartoon Movement are used without our permission.

Iraqi cartoonist Saad Murtadha contacted us about resistart.ir, an Iranian website that features art and cartoons from around the globe. He was rather surprised to find a comprehensive gallery of his work on this website, as he was never contacted or informed in any way. It makes us wonder how many other cartoonists have a gallery on this website without them knowing. A number of Cartoon Movement cartoonists can be found on the website.

Although it is always an honor to have people value your work, the honor becomes questionable when the website in question probably has ties to the Iran House of Cartoon (we wrote about this before) and thus the Iranian regime.
