: : Oh and also, I have created a certain character of my own design inspired by a show I am a fan of. This character is totally original, Am I violating any copyright laws by making a character for a show that is already in existence? Also how do I go about sending in this character of mine to the creators of the show....if I wanted to....

Dear Grace Zurn,
It all can be done but it is not like a rubber stamp. You have to understand how the law works and probably have to us Trademarks or service marks to get proper protection.
