Dear Mr. D: I purchased a "Scotty" from you many years ago (and kept his name as Scotty). There is a chance my dear partner may have a chance to be in a commercial. My question to you is this, is Scotty considered a copyright character and do I need permission from you to use him for this type of work? I wanted to make sure before anything was decided. Thanks so much!Jessie Rex and Scotty

Jessie: You have my full permission to use Scotty (neither he or the name is copyrighted) in your commercials, DVDs, TV, movies, brochures, etc. Your success is my wish for you! And the same is true for all persons who own and use a ventriloquist figure which I built personally. Clinton Detweiler (Mr. D)
