“the Swedish heirs of Astrid Lindgren has their own idea about how should be managed the rights to it, and we are unable to negotiate with them. In this regard, most likely, the Russian continue “Carlson” will not” – said Slaschova in the ether of the author’s program of the Institute of industrial management of Ranepa “Talk”.
But she did not rule out, that the heirs may agree with someone else.
At the same time Yuliana Slaschova said that Russia is the only country, where Carlson was able to make empathic character, unhealthy, but absolutely positive that everybody loves. “Nowhere else in other countries, where the purchased license is not managed”, she said and added that the Russian continue Carlson will not.
this, of course, is about a cult Soviet cartoon “the Kid and Carlson” Boris Stepantsev, which was released in 1968. And in 1970 came the sequel “Carlson has returned”.
the Question of copyright was the key to “Soyuzmultfilm” in the last three years. From 2017, the Studio has managed to return more than 90 percent of rights to use audiovisual images and animated films “Golden collection”.
However, until now, failed to return another important category of rights – the-air television.
“the Studio in the end of last year were able to buy the rights to pay TV. A year ago we bought the rights to the Internet, has left terrestrial TV, which we do not redeem can for a number of reasons. But this category of rights, at least the Studio gets a royalty” – quoted Slasheva RIA Novosti.
Also fails to solve the problem with Japanese colleagues on the rights to Cheburashka. The Studio even asked for help to the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.
“We are convinced that the Japanese side contract expired at the end of 2014. They voluntarily have considered the contract extended until 2023. It turns out that about 2.5 years – the rights of the Japanese side. The most unpleasant thing about this is that they sell “Cheburashka” only in Japan and maybe even in several Asian countries, and keep the rights to the whole world. Because of this we can’t go out either in Europe or in North or Latin America. Of course, we’re uncomfortable” – explains the Director of “Soyuzmultfilm”.
