Note for schools: If a (traditional) in-person school teacher or administrator would like to allow multiple students to use the AnimSchool character files, they must agree to the license terms on behalf of the school, and ensure the students in the program follow the terms of the license agreement. Accordingly, the students must be aware not to take the characters outside of the school without getting their own license.
