Tale Spin is copyrighted by Buena Vista Television/Disney. We are borrowing its characters and setting for a fan-written continuation that picks up where the original series stopped. Tale Spin: High Flight is a non-profit venture, and is intended in the spirit of a tribute to the power of the original series.
All new, original characters and situations are the property and creation of the fanfiction series High Flight. Since High Flight is a collaborative effort, we have some specific policies about the borrowing of characters or situations we invented that were not in the original Tale Spin canon. This policy is only a variation of the basic netiquette that requires any fanfiction author borrowing from another to ask permission and give credit where credit is due.
If you would like to borrow elements of the High Flight universe, you need to do the following:
1. Contact the crew of High Flight asking permission. In your e-mail, be specific about which characters, backstory, etc., you want to borrow. The contact address for this is firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't expect to say "no" to any request, but reserve the right to do so if it seems as if the characters would be used in a way that reflects badly on Tale Spin fanfiction and the fandom. We won't ask to read the story before you post it, we only ask that you ask us permission first. However, the crew of High Flight also reserves the right to complain loudly, in public, if we find out later on that a character was used in a way that reflects badly on High Flight's character or Tale Spin fandom. We won't quibble simply because a fellow fanfiction author's vision of a High Flight character is different than how we saw that character.
2. Credit the fanfiction series High Flight for the character(s) you borrowed. Since High Flight is collaborative, there is no need to mention a specific author, but you must credit the hard working men and women who planned, discussed, and/or wrote the stories these characters appear in.
Artwork belongs to the artists who originally drew the image. The artists can do what they like with their images, and are the only ones who can give permission for artwork to be posted anywhere but the High Flight page.
Stories belong to the High Flight Crew. Right now, we're keeping all the stories exclusive to this website because we want to present them and keep them together as a series, as they were conceived. Anyone can link to the index page, we encourage it! But please do not make your own index of our stories linking to our server.
Tale Spin is canon. We are not. We welcome quotes, reviews, and commentary on anything we do on High Flight. If you do profile High Flight characters, please label them as such.
