I've spoken with the people who seemingly own the cartoons:
and I've also spoken with the UCLA Film Archive.
Who owns them?
They all didn't know.
As I quote in an old e-mail to Jerry Beck:
"Oh, the rights are so confusing."
If the owner is just public domain, then we need to remaster the cartoons OURSELVES along with Harvey and Paramount(just license to use their logo). I'm speaking to you animation experts.
If the owner is a "somebody", then people have got to shape up. It seems as if nobody cares, and brings a sniff to my eye.
