Greetings Ya'll. I want to come up with a motto or mascot for my department, but have a question I need an answer to first. Of course I would like the design to be an original, but if someone can't come up with one, and they want to use a known character, ie "Taz" etc, do you have to get permission from the copyright first? I'm pretty sure you do, but would like clarification from someone who has had a similar experience with this. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Take care, stay safe, & stay low.

Lt. Spinney
