Hi,

Does anyone know how to go about getting copyright clearce for using images from various music groups, cartoon images etc

Something similar to what bang-on have done? Im looking to get permission to use various retro tv/movie/music & cartoon images and want to ensure i go about it the right way.

Ive emailed some companies, like hasbro etc but havent heard anything back.

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated

thanks

Strackal,

I've done my fair share of contacting companies about getting licensing rights.

One thing I've learned is that you will almost never ever hear back when you contact them via e-mail. Letters are a 50/50. The best way to go about this is to contact the company over the phone. Ask for the legal department and usually they can help you out or they'll know who in the company you need to talk to and give you that information.

Getting licensing rights is tough, especially for the little guy just starting out. Most people won't want to waste their time talking to you and you increase your chances if your business is up and has been running. A website is a must.

I hope this helped some. Good luck.
