Tampa Tribune Agrees to Pay Tina Dupuy

Tina Dupuy made a new video of the Tampa Tribune relenting to the pressure of the internet and agreeing to pay her for her op-ed "'Birthers' are clinging to unreasonable doubt." The explanation by editor Jim Beamguard for the the Tribune's turnabout left Dupuy speechless.

Dave Dugan of Zencomix has sent Loren Omoto, Director of TBO.com Content, an invoice.

It has come to my attention that you have been using my copyrighted cartoons as content on tbo.com. At this point in time, I have identified 4 of my comic strips that you have used, located at these web addresses on your website.





The price for using my cartoons is $100 per comic strip, so you owe me $400. The payment is due by 11:59 pm on September 22. If payment has not been received by the due date, a late fee of 10% on the outstanding balance will accrue on a daily basis.

Payment can be made through the Paypal button located in the left hand sidebar of my website, Zencomix.If you are unable to use the Paypal button, and you need an address so you can mail me a paper check, let me know.

Thank you,
David Dugan

P.S. Bulk rates are available if payment is made in advance.

Dave wrote a related post at his blog. Dave is asking if anyone else has found Zencomix posts on TBO.com. I brought this to Dave's attention.

Thanks to Crooks and Liars for posting about our problems with the Tampa Tribune.
