: I'm looking into publishing an activity packet for education purposes. I'm in touch with an illustrator who can produce illustrations for the project. After the project is complete, we would be selling the product to classrooms. We are unsure as to which cartoon character we will use, but would like to know where to start as far as the copywrite of the characters goes.
Dear Melissa Woodington,
I expect that you are going to be confronted by a rewquest for a big up front cost. I'm not sure where to go but if you start with King Features you ought to get a quick idea of what you are up against.
