Good morning,
Your CSLP representatives are very pleased to share the following email
from Matt Mulder of Highsmith:
"I continue continue to receive 5-7 calls a day from Oregon libraries
requesting permission to use the artwork on their materials.The original
intent of this particular rule was to allow states to customize items at
a state or large library system level. We certainly don’t want to be an
impediment to each individual library. If you have the ability, I would
urge you to send an email to your libraries letting them know they may
use the artwork to create materials for their program unless they want
to specifically personalize an existing CSLP item, i.e. adding a logo to
the bookmark [offered by Highsmith]."
Upon receiving this email, we asked about minimum quantities and Matt
"Unless someone wants to customize the existing [Highsmith] reading
records, posters or bookmarks, they are free to use the art to create
their own materials."
What this means is that Highsmith is giving Oregon libraries permission
to use CSLP art to create their own paper materials this year! Please
note, though, if you want Upstart to professionally add your logo or
library name/address to a paper item in the Upstart catalog, you will
still need to contact Matt with your personalization request. Remember,
you are allowed to "customize" purchased Highsmith posters and bookmarks
in-house by printing library information on an affixed label or on the
reverse side of an item. The strict Rules of Use do still apply to
Highsmith incentives. For example, you may not use CSLP art to create
your own t-shirt, bag, pencil, etc. 

Highsmith and CSLP will need to discuss whether or not this is just an
exception for Oregon this year, if it applies to all CSLP member states,
and whether this is a long or short-term change. Your CSLP
representatives will continue to keep you informed of this.
Thank you all! Your calls to Matt are what made this possible.
