Before I go on a tirade of searching and since this project is a little down the road, I figured I'd ask here since a lot of people are in the know and I might get some helpful hints before starting. In the past, any intellectual property I've dealt with has been my own or the company's I'm representing, so this is a little new territory for me: the idea has been presented for a future development project I am working on that we might consider employing DC Characters for it. From my quick research, I've found DC generally tends to prefer royalties for the products in question, but much more then that, I couldn't find any REAL feedback on how much DC charges for use of their characters up front on products they approve. Does anyone here have any insight on costing and/or who TPTB actually are that need to be contacted beyond submitting DC's general solicitation form? Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
