Licensing & Syndication Rights
Zapiro is always keen that his cartoons are published as widely as
possible. There are many circumstances where the use of Zapiro cartoons
can help you get your message across or increase the sales of your
publication. For example:
syndication for regular use in a newspaper or magazine
on websites and other promotional materials
in fan websites dedicated to Zapiro or cartooning in general
in reports and books to emphasise or illustrate issues
in printed and online collections of cartoons either by Zapiro or by cartoonists in general.
Whatever your use please only use Zapiro's cartoons for your own
website, publication or presentation once you've got his prior consent
— they are both his livelihood and his copyright.
Normally permission will be granted quite readily provided that your
use doesn't conflict with or misrepresent the message in the cartoon.
Sometimes there will be a fee for using the cartoon(s) — particularly
for commercial or quasi-commercial purposes.
