"Mary Jo has been a key collaborator and instructor in the GW MPS in Publishing program for more than a decade, co-teaching or serving as instructional assistant for our Copyright Law in Publishing course. This course is always a favorite of students; alumni frequently mention that the course has an impact throughout their career. MJ has provided valuable input and advise about the strategic direction of the program, our comprehensive curriculum, and our focus on career management." - John Warren, Director, Graduate Program in Publishing, The George Washington University.

Liu, President, Pivotal Media Inc. 


"Mary Jo at Gryphon Publishing Consulting, LLC is my absolute first choice for permissions and other publishing copyright projects. She makes long, complex processes seem easy, and gets results above what I'd even hoped for. She is also very responsive and excels at communication. She was an integral part of the success of my most recent project, and I look forward to working with her again. "

-Paige Towler, Associate Editor, National Geographic Partners

"I wholeheartedly recommend Mary Jo of Gryphon Publishing Consulting, LLC for copyright questions and counseling.  You don’t have to be a publisher to make use of her valuable advice; I had some important questions regarding rights to imagery used by rubber stampers in creating hand made crafts. Mary Jo gave me the lowdown and even let me in on some industry scoop - talks underway to allow rights violation cases to be heard in small claims court, which could make the process more approachable for individuals. The average person is blissfully, and potentially irresponsibly, unaware of even the most basic rights regulations. When in doubt, ask. Mary Jo is there to answer."

-Anne Wain, AnnaBella Studio

"I have worked with Mary Jo for several years and have found her always very efficient and professional. She has a wide knowledge of subsidary rights and is a great source of information."

-Sophie Liardet, Publicity Director, Sophie Liardet PR
