Permissions Consulting Testimonials
Kelly's tenacity in tracking down rights holders was exceptional. I'm convinced she is actually a detective.
They accomplished in a couple of months what I tried to accomplish for two years. I was kept informed of every step in the process.
June hired GSF [now CWC] to secure permission for her to use song lyrics in an essay she was submitting for publication.
Kelly was instrumental in helping me research public domain photos and even creating images for my book, Truth. As a first time author, it was a very big deal to have someone on board that knew all the ins and outs of the industry and I cannot thank her enough for her professionalism and timeliness of her work.
I felt comfortable with Kelly as soon as I heard her voice in our phone consultation. She was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I appreciated the clarification and specific suggestions in her follow up email.
