Licensed characters are those properties owned by a particular company or person. Disney, Warner Bros. and Nickelodeon are examples of companies that have exclusive rights to their character creations. These ownerships can extend to the estates of famous figures as well. As an example, Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley are not available to be utilized in any way without permission, and royalty fees are required from companies wishing to use their images. In order to preserve the integrity of their license, a licensor will often require that their characters are created by “licensed approved artists”. In other words, artists, upon whom they can trust to duplicate a perfect likeness of their licensed character. Submissions of toys or products without excellent character duplication can be turned down by the licensor at great expense to the licensee. Our ASaP Master Sculptors have had their character renditions approved by most all of the high profile character licensors.
