: Hey, me and some friends are working on an extrmely small, extremely low budget, not for profit indie animation flick and are planning a a few scenes that use Kevin Smith's likeness or mention his name...I was just wondering how it is possible to get the o.k. for that sort of thing.

: If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it, otherwise we'll have to use someone else, and that would mildly suck considering we're all huge fans and want to keep the story straight.

: Thanks!

you have to put a disclaimer at the beginning or end of the film stating that all celebrity voices have been impersonated and no celebrities have endorsed any aspect of it. I recall that from m five seconds of pre-pre-pre-law, or as we know now it, The People's Court. Oh and you have to suck his cock ;>

Seriously, that's all you have to do. In no way can you lift his dialogue though. But the celeb voices thing falls under parody. Which is legally protected.
