In an effort to reduce barriers to the use of copyrighted material in my works, The Character Consultancy takes the following stance on fair use, licensing, and use of copyright materials:
A: Fair Use Of Creators' Material
The Character Consultancy seeks permission for the use of, and credits, the creator's artworks, for which the creator owns the copyright, under the doctrine of fair use. Possible uses include:
Publishing The Character Consultancy's work under fair use does not require permission from or a license agreement with The Character Consultancy. However, in order to ensure accuracy in crediting of all original creators and citations, publishers are requested to contact The Character Consultancy to obtain copies and citations. See Contact Us information in the above menu.
B: The Character Consultancy's Policy on Use of Copyrighted Works
As a copyright holder, The Character Consultancy supports fair use of The Character Consultancy written or spoken works. Similarly, as a creator of artistic content, The Character Consultancy exercises the right to responsibly make fair use of works for which The Character Consultancy does not own the copyright, once permission has been sought and given. If you have any questions or comments on our use of images or believe an image has been reproduced in violation of copyright, please contact us at thecharacterconsultancy
C: Royalty-free Image Use by The Character Consultancy
