    I've not heard any rights issues... Though, I guess copyright is an interesting possible reason, as with seeing original Daleks in 2013, 50 years or so after they first appeared ... (Though I believe they have 75 years thanks to Disney)

    *lol*

    In the USA (and I imagine similar in other parts of the Western world) copyright generally lasts til around 50 years after the death of the author.

    In the late 90's in USA this was extended to 75 years, which meant that early Disney work, that was about to become free for anyone to copy and distribute (and profit from), had copyright protection extended. (Disney had been a fierce force behind this move.)

    Free Trade deals that were made between the USA and various countries (including Australia, where I live) in the 00's included terms insisting that copyright laws match these changes, so it has become law in other countries too.

    Or at least, that's my vague understanding of it all...

    And when Disney's copyrights on their early material get close to expiration under the 1998 law, you can expect the issue to be revisited and extended again.
