Why Not??

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Why doesn't MTV sell the rights to Aeon Flux, its not like they even acknowledge the show ever being on MTV. I think Aeon Flux deserves a new home.

Who would pick it up? I just don't think the audience is there. I know I've been lambasted for this before but I still think the best thing for Aeon is to get episodes available on file sharing programs like soulseek, kazaa, morpheus etc. As a promotional tool it is the ONLY option for starting a buzz.

Do you really think a company would sell a property to somebody else if they thought it would make any profits whatsoever?

Even if AF is met with utterly mediocre results on another network, I'm sure Viacom would gnash its teeth at the idea of its profits going to somebody else - especially if that "somebody else" is a small-time competitor like Cartoon Network that actually listens to its audience and has potential to become a bigger threat.

Welcome to corporate culture! How may I disservice you? :D

I think Teletoon should pick it up. They're showing things like "Spicy City", "The Oblongs", "Mission Hill", and "Undergrads". As well, they are showing other MTV shows like "The Head" and I think "Maxx" so why not "Aeon Flux"? Therefore, in my small opinion, there is no reason why they couldn't show "Aeon Flux".

i don't think it should be aired at all anymore.

i don't know why...:: shrugs ::

MTV/Sony/Whichever of the five giants owns Aeon Flux will never, never release the rights. As long as there's the tiniest chance that they can sell them for money, they'll hang onto them long after Peter and all of us loyal fans are dead.

The big media companies are more or less immune to any restrictive copyright laws. Look what happened to A.A. Milne, poor bastard...
