    I believe that Miramax's current owners are trying to sell the company, but they have lost/are losingsing the rights to a bunch of their catalog, so it doesn't surprise me that they are claiming they still have the right a to a film that they really don't own.

    They have a bit of a history of this though, don't they? I seem to remember there being titles in their catalogue disputed more than once over the years, though of course right now I'm drawing a blank on which titles they were.

    Probably, but like you I can't recall any right now. Did Miramax raise a stink when Subversive put out their DUST DEVIL DVD?

    Stanley was recently interviewed on Podcasting them Softly and got into the clusterfuck situation regarding the Dust Devil rights issues. The long/short of it is Stanley possesses all the hi-def masters but can't do anything with them because the studio is claiming worldwide ownership and is threatening legal action against anyone trying to put out both Dust Devil and Hardware.

    36:35 is where that particular topic comes up but as always with Stanley the entire interview is a great listen.
