Licensing deals can be a steady, profitable revenue stream for your business.

But far too many artists don’t understand the legal fine print of licensing deals, so they:

  • Sign contracts they later regret.
  • Give away broader rights to use the designs than they intended.
  • Don’t get compensated fairly for how the designs can be used.

Many artists also don’t understand typical things that are (and aren’t) negotiable. And what to ask for when they negotiate.

But what if you had the confidence that you could read, understand, and negotiate licensing agreements? So that you only sign contracts that are fair to you and your business.


Tools for adding ease to the legalese

The heart of the artist’s Courtyard is our Legal Library.

The Legal Library is like having a legal guide at your fingertips. It gives you the tools and resources you need to understand, and more importantly, take action on legal aspects of your business.

Inside you’ll find:

  • in-depth courses on things like registering copyrights or creating an LLC
  • deep-dive workshops on topics like dealing with copycats or hiring team members
  • contract templates including a client contract, consignment agreement, and licensing agreement
  • quick dip resources on topics like trademark, copyrighting patterns, and keeping your address private.

The Legal Library is your creative business’ go-to legal toolbox for building a legally protected business—and it’s only available to members of the artist’s Courtyard.

No Questions Asked Refund Policy

Hype and promises abound on the Internet. And if I were in your shoes, I’d be wary too.

Which is why I’m going to put a little skin in the game.

If within the first 30 days, you decide that the artist’s Courtyard isn’t the right place to help you build a strong foundation, I’ll refund your payment.

No hoops to jump through, no worksheets to submit, no screenshots of how you participated. You just need to let me know and I’ll refund you, without any fuss.

What formats are the materials in?

The workshop materials are a mix of closed-captioned video, text within Google Docs, and a PDF.

And as a bonus, within workshop materials, you’ll have the ability to leave any questions so you can get additional support from Kiffanie!

Which option should I pick?

If you don’t live in the U.S., you should pick the standalone workshop! And that’s because all of the resources in the artist’s Courtyard are focused on U.S. law and won’t help your business.

If you are based in the U.S., then you can pick either! The standalone workshop version is designed for those that don’t like monthly subscriptions, only have the bandwidth to focus on this specific topic, or already have an attorney helping them with other areas of their creative business.

What’s included in my membership in the artist’s Courtyard?

Can I cancel my membership to the artist’s Courtyard at any time?

Yep! No contracts or commitments here. You can cancel at any time with just a single click from your member profile page. If you email Kiffanie to cancel within the first 30 days, you’ll get a full refund. However, if you cancel after 30 days, you won’t receive a pro-rated refund. (You can read our full refund policy and when refunds are issued here.)
