Networking Resource - Art Licensing Forums

Logging into internet forums are free and a good way to network with others interested in art licensing. Listed below are three forums that you can join. Members have a variety of licensing experiences and are willing to share their expertise. Once you are a member you can look at past posts, share licensing experiences, ask your burning questions, or solicit advice. And no question is considered dumb. However, some questions have been asked time and time again so it might be wise to search the forum archives before posting your questions since they may have already been answered.

1. Art of Licensing yahoo forum ( is moderated by Franchelle Contref. It has been in existence the longest (since 2000) and has over 1000 members.
