Do I own all the copyrights to that character after I purchase it?
Here is the simplest answer... not really. When you buy a custom puppet we may be ``making YOUR idea come to life``... but that's not necessarily the case here. While the IDEA is yours, the actual process to bring it to life depends on us. There is a difference between a drawing and a physical 3D object. However, when you purchase a custom puppet you will also receive a ``Signature Series Contract``. Included in this is the rights to use the character in visual media for advertising/promotional/personal ministry purposes only (not for profit). Any other rights are owned by Kristofer Sommerfeld Productions™. Copies of your puppet will not be sold to anyone else. If you would like additional rights for media/product/etc. (for profit), you may obtain them through a licensing contract or a full buy-out fee where you can purchase all future media/product rights* to the character. Please contact us for more information. Again, your puppet/idea will NOT be sold to anyone else. *Kristofer Sommerfeld Productions™ will remain the sole owner of any patterns, materials, personal designs, building techniques, prototypes, or any other form related to the building process and will not relinquish them.
