I think it was mentioned on this list, but there was an article in
_Wired_ in December, 2004 about the problems we rereleasing _Eyes on the
Prize_. It is not just one scene in the series. To quote the article:
" Filmmakers must pay for the rights to use every song, photograph or
video clip included in the film." Also in the article it states: " it
will cost nearly $500,000 to clear rights. Forman hopes to get the
series back on television by 2006." If you have not seen the article,
it is at:
