Maria Brophy and I are thrilled that our eBook and Maria’s templates are making this part of the business more understandable and easier to do.

Here is an email we got the other day about the eBook How to Understand Art Licensing Contracts and The Artist’s Short License Agreement Template Package:

Nicole TamarinI just sent off my first contract using one of Maria’s templates and I was so glad to have them!  Up until this point I had been provided with contracts from the Licensees I’ve worked with, so when I was asked to provide my own, I was able to avoid that deer in headlights feeling!  It was comforting to know there was language covering all the major points of a basic agreement and it was so easy to use.  It was far less intimidating to go through each of the sections, making sure they fit my needs, than trying to come up with something from the ground up.  I loved that all the fields were called out in red, and in some cases, I realized I didn’t have the information to fill them in, prompting me to go back to the manufacturer for clarification.  I have found your ebook “How To Understand Art Licensing Contracts” to be an invaluable reference and Maria’s templates are the perfect compliment.  Thank you for all you both do to educate artists about this industry; it has helped pursue a career in something I’m not sure I would have had the confidence to do otherwise!

Thank You SO MUCH Again!
