Hi - yes, it costs for a license -- either a royalty or a flat fee is normal.

How do I go about brokering a licensing deal? Do I need to go through a lawyer?
IP Lawyer: Roger, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

It is possible to do this without a lawyer.....if you can just call owner and ask what a license fee will cost you. But, if there are negotiations required to obtain the license, you may want to consult a lawyer to assist.

How do I get ahold of the people I would need to talk to in order to get a Licensing Deal from The Walking Dead?
IP Lawyer: Roger, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You'd need to contact the USPTO and ask who holds the trademark on the name you're wanting to use and obtain their contact information or you can try to search online first and see what you find. Here's a link: http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database
