head-desk - me

grrrr

So the really helpful people at Buenna Vista entertainment finally got back to me about using promotional materials from Lost in the Library's Freshers' Far.

They're not going to let us use the official stuff unless Channel 4 agree to cover the Fair itself which I doubt is going to happen.

Crap. Crap. Crap.

So that basically leaves us with the other option which was suggeted after the meeting - the Jungle Book. I have to say WTF?!!! The Freshers' Fair is for new students at the Uni. The youngest of them is going to 17. They don't give a crap about the Jungle Book!! They're not seven!

I did have a word with the woman and ask if there was a way we could allude to the show without using official merch and her answer was that if we did they would be in a position to legislate (not legislate - I meant litigate!) but they probably wouldn't because it's a non-profit organization (and that was off the record)

*sigh* engelsteorra, we need to come up with something fast before we end up wearing Bear or gorrilla costumes...
