Not Fanning The Flames
To Whom It May Concern:
I think it's about time that I had a hard and fast rule about fan projects to prevent any future misunderstandings like those I've had in the recent and not-so-recent past.
So, from this moment on, I will not participate in any fan projects, paid or unpaid, regardless of the Intellectual Property involved.
I'm now officially business-to-business, with contracts, talent releases, industry-standard rates and tax filings required, as appropriate, for our mutual protection .
I will state for the record that all past disagreements have been resolved to my satisfaction, so let's not have any future ones. In good faith, my pending commitments are still being honored.
In a related development, I might have to refuse or modify any custom dialogue requests that come my way during personal appearances, if they seem risky. Tiny Baskin-Robbins-sized vocal samples of my choosing will be cheerfully provided.
Apologies in advance for any inconvenience.
