I apologize in advance if this is not the proper forum for this.
I am an independent developer and I am hoping to create a new iPhone crossword puzzle app. In order to do so, I need to license a number of crossword puzzles. I don't necessarily need new crosswords, at least not initially, so I am fine with archived/old puzzles.
I've attempted to contact the NYTimes to inquire about licensing their puzzles since they are the gold standard, but I have yet to hear back from anyone there. Does anyone here have any guidance on how to get in touch with the right person at the NYT or any other source of crossword puzzles that I can use for licensing in my game?
Thank you very much for any help you can provide.
