Saban bought the rights to Power Rangers back (RBN related)

This could potentially mean that OZone could actually get the Power Rangers theme on RBN since the main thing blocking him from what I remember is Disney owning the rights to it.

    Harmonix would still probably worry about the legal aspects of the name though

    Saban has cut a deal with Nickelodeon for 20 new "Power Rangers" episodes, while the library of some 700 older segs will begin airing on cabler Nicktoons later this year.
    Come on cross promotion!

    Edit: This of course would factor out Ozone, in favor of the hmx of music license gods.

    I didn't want to come in here, but you guys are really getting out of hand.

    Please stop bringing up that other song and getting all mad at Harmonix. Keep the discussion on-topic or else bad things will happen (likely to me).

    Thanks.

    EDIT: General, I saw your post before you editted it. Only attractive women get to "screw Ozone". ;)

    Saban seems to have bought the rights to the entire show. I don't know anything about how these legal issues work, but the article makes it sound like OZone might only need permission from Saban and not Disney now.

    Of course, even if that's true, it still requires Saban to hand the song over, but maybe if we're lucky they'll be more willing than Disney.

    Mumblings are, they've been game for it the whole time, it's just been Disney.

    And it's not like Ron couldn't re-record for the new series if he had to, keep the original character while amping it up for the new generation (and making it even more RB-ready).

    Hey, maybe even use Fight Back as the closing credits song!

    When I showed him the article on Twitter this is what he said

    Sweet Jesus. I have contacts with old Saban, so I will look into this.

    Well, one song that Wasserman had uploaded to RBN, Revengers Theme, had to be taken down due to legal issues, even though Wasserman had all legal rights to the song and Disney was not affiliated - Harmonix simply was too worried about licensing issues to allow it to stay up

    Been playing it for a while. It's up, but HMX wont put it into the store.

    It wouldn't suprise me that Ozone will get in more trouble just to try to put this song in RBN. It also wouldn't suprise me that HMX will get the rights to Power Rangers and put it in the store. Plus I don't know if Ron might want to even try it again after the whole ordeal that happened with Revengers.

    But, I'm still crossing my fingers and lighting up candles over here :D

    Maybe he's thinking of Miranda Cosgrove? (Not sure if she's affiliated with Disney.)

    epic win if this gets fully pulled off. and wouldn't it just be truly epic if we lost out on the minute and a half of revengers awesome but we ended up with the full 4 minutes of this? i'd consider that the best consolation prize in the history of this game.

    People saying things like this must have absolutely no idea how any of this works.

    If Saban gives permission for the Power Rangers song to be authored by Ozone, then there is no possible way that there could ever be a licensing problem. Saban owns Power Rangers so it's their call on what happens with everything Power Rangers related.

    The whole problem with Revengers was that Ron wrote it for a series that never came to be. Since it was never attached to any show, the song belonged to him, but since the company that originally asked Ron to write the song wasn't happy about the song coming up, the best thing to do was just remove the song altogether and avoid any future problems.

    The song actually was rejected it was supposed to be used for the upcoming Avengers cartoon on Cartoon Network. Marvel gave Ron permission to change the lyrics to remove any instances of mentioning Avengers at all.

    Oh, well I guess I misunderstood what happened with that song.

    Regardless, nothing like that could happen with the MMPR song. If Saban gives Ron and Ozone permission to author the song, it's impossible for any licensing issues to arise.

    I have a feeling Saban is going to be going all out with the PR Merchandise soon. All those MMPR episodes not out on DVD and Bluray...

    I'm positive if there's enough a demand that we can get the MMPR Theme now!

    Was going to mention it was odd we hadn't heard from Ozone yet, but I can only imagine he's already heard the news and is hard at work on this. Crossing my fingers.

    So if Ozone does get the Power Rangers theme I might just have to buy a song from him....Oh well.

    Hopefully HMX gets the rights! :D

    I smell a conspiracy... and it stinks. I refuse to check twitter while I'm at work. The forums has been the place where I get all my RBN info during the daytime.

    There ain't one. A user did something they shouldn't have, and was subsequently removed for doing so.

    And if I recall, the tone of the main thread (ground zero if you will) was getting excessively hostile.
