Well our title was THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST which we have under special
contract but Zeitgeist is and should be worried about NOWHERE IN AFRICA
in which they licensed Home Video ONLY to Columbia
Also none of the Chaplin DVD's released by Warner Bros are covered and we
deal with the Chaplin Estate on other things and they would FLIP OUT
There are I am sure literally hundreds if not thousands of exceptions
so I think some of us distributors & rights holders need to approach
them about this and find a way so that this does not keep happening.
Ironically it can work BOTH WAYS in that Kino releases APPLAUSE
& LOVE ME TONIGHT but they WOULD be covered by any contract that
covers Universal as we own no PPR rights on them.
