Abstract: In this paper it is shown that for an orientation-preserving homeomorphism $ f$ between domains $ D$ and $ D'$ in $ {\mathbf{\bar C}}$ to be conformal it is necessary and sufficient that there is an $ a > 1$ such that $ \bmod f(Q) = \bmod Q$ for each square $ Q$ in $ D$ and for each oriented rectangle $ Q$ in $ D$ with $ \bmod Q = a$.
