Thanks, Eileen, for the link. This "Wired" article helps to ground the
discussion about rights in the facts of the "Eyes on the Prize" case.

Subject: Re: [Videolib] Eyes on the Prize
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:
