Acceptable Use of Artwork

The 2009 Texas Teens Read! artist is Emily Fiegenschuh and she possesses the copyright to the artwork she created for Time Twistin’ TTR.09. In accordance with the artist’s contract, Emily Fiegenschuh’s artwork will be included with the 2009 Texas Teens Read! manual on CD-ROM and will be uploaded onto the Texas State Library’s web site. All images include a copyright symbol designating Emily Fiegenschuh as copyright holder.

In accordance with the artist’s contract, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission grants Texas libraries a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to reproduce all color artwork and clip art in the Texas Teens Read! manual to promote Texas Teens Read!, their libraries, and reading. It may be used to create items such as crafts, t-shirts, programs, and library decorations. If a library utilizes artwork in print or on promotional items, the artwork must include the copyright symbol designating Emily Fiegenschuh as copyright holder.

In addition, Texas libraries are granted permission to upload the color artwork and clip art onto their library web sites for the sole purpose of promoting the 2009 Texas Teens Read!, libraries, and reading. If a library uploads artwork onto their web sites, the artwork must carry the copyright symbol designating Emily Fiegenschuh as copyright holder. The library must also provide a link to this Acceptable Use of Artwork by Emily Fiegenschuh on the Texas State Library and Archives Commission web site or on the library’s web site.

The color artwork on the certificate, poster, and bookmark may not be altered or modified in any way. Images may not be manipulated and colors may not be changed. It is, however, acceptable to use a part of the artwork for promotion. For example, an image of a specific character or a portion of the artwork may be pulled from the whole art piece and placed on a button, flyer, or other promotional item. The artwork must include the copyright symbol with Emily Fiegenschuh listed as copyright holder.

All reproductions of the color poster, bookmark, and certificate must credit the Texas Teens Read! and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. They must include the words, “Texas Teens Read!” and “The 2009 Texas Teens Read! is Sponsored by Your Local Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.” This text appears on the color artwork and must remain on the poster, bookmark, and certificate.

Bookmarks, Borders, Buttons, Certificates, Reading Logs, and More!

Public libraries in Texas may use the artwork to create items for use as incentives, awards, and prizes that are given to teens. The artwork is the property of the artist. Please respect her work! All images must include the copyright symbol with Emily Fiegenschuh listed as copyright holder. Libraries may resize and reverse the clip art, but may not alter it. The name of the library may be added, but the art is owned by the illustrator and may not be touched up, edited, or modified without permission. Color may be added to the clip art only if the same color hues as represented in the poster, bookmark, and certificate are utilized.

The artwork may only be used on items that will be sold if the proceeds are returned to the library directly, or through a Friends of the Library organization, and sales are limited to Texas. Please direct questions to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, 512-463-6623.
