License Agreement
License Agreement for artwork of Thompson Advertising, Inc. dba Toons4biz. From here forward, referred to as Toons4biz. Toons4biz provides a non-exclusive Standard License with all its artwork.

Please FEEL okay to use our characters for newsletters, packaging, t-shirts, displays, packaging and more. It is permitted to use our characters as your company spokes-character. You CAN use them as your logo or part of your logo. You CAN put them on merchandise such as t-shirts and coffee mugs and resell them without out worrying about licensing rights or royalties (aren't we nice!)

Our only concerns are 1) those people who'd use our library of art to compete against us in the sale of images over the Internet (without a written agreement to do so), and 2) those people who'd include our characters in some type of clip art collection, thus cheapening the value of it. The legal copy below is written for the purpose of preventing these two things.

The Standard License allows the use of artwork by a single school or government facility (anyone or any computer within a single building). If you want to share the Toons4biz artwork with multiple facilities, you must purchase a multiple user license. Call for pricing and details: (816) 366.0199.

Licensed users CAN duplicate the artwork and use it on any computer(s) owned by the licensed school/facility.

A Standard License limits the use of Toons4biz images for anything other than official school functions. The artwork CAN be used for any official school team, but teams not officially associated with a license school have to purchase the artwork/license separately.

The artwork CAN also be altered and used to produce and sell school-related or facility-related items including: shirts, uniforms, flyers, brochures, premiums, flags, banners, murals, signs, logos, posters and similar items.

The artwork CAN be used on an official school Web site, but may NOT be offered as clipart, part of a clipart set, as art for sale, or as any design software template for sale or giveaway.

CLIPART SETS for schools come with four levels of licensing: A) Single School; B) Three School; C) Five School; and D) Ten School. All schools using the artwork must be in the same school district.

CLIPART SETS for facilities come with four levels of licensing: A) Single facility; B) Up to 10 facilities; C) Up to 399 facilities; D) Unlimited facilities. Call for pricing.

INDIVIDUAL clipart images are sold with a Single School/Facility License.

Teams are considered independent entities. If they are officially associated with a school, they CAN use artwork licensed by that school indefinitely. If the team is part of a non-school league, the artwork (with a one-year license) must be purchased separately. All individual images are sold with the same restrictions found in a Single School License. Basically - the artwork can only be used by one team, for one year.
