ARTISAN had licensed the rights to the Republic Library from Spelling Entertainment before the merger with Blockbuster and then Viacom and then Paramount, and when ARTISAN was bought by LIONSGATE, they continued to licence the titles. But neither company did much with them. As far as i can tell, it was only Republic titles,no Paramount titles were part of the deal. Not sure if any of the non-republic titles that were part of the NTA library was included. If LIONSGATE opted not to renew the contract, there's a chance OLIVE FILMS could eventually licence some of the Republic titles from Paramount,or another party.
