Harmony Gold on Macross Rights

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Harmony Gold vice president Alan Letz has issued an official statement regarding their rights to the Macross series.

According to an official Statement from Harmony Gold, by their Vice president of Business Development, Harmony Gold's international rights to the Macross TV series have not been affected by the legal proceedings taking place in Japan.

To all Robotech and Macross fans:

A number of rumors have arisen during the past week as a result of legal proceedings in Japan.

The original Macross television series was the result of a monumental collaborative effort involving several companies of creative individuals. We at Harmony Gold appreciate all the hard work these combined talents put forth to make Macross possible. We are proud to have worked closely with AnimEigo to provide fans with a faithful subtitled release of Macross in its original format.

The litigation in Japan involving Tatsunoko, Big West and Studio Nue does not affect Harmony Gold or its licensees. Harmony Gold is not a party to any legal proceedings. Furthermore, the lawsuit, which was tried in front of a Japanese court, only relates to rights in Japan. Since Harmony Gold's worldwide rights to Macross exclude Japan, a Japanese judgment does not apply to us.

We continue to be very excited about our Macross projects with Toynami and AnimEigo and look forward to a bright future for Robotech and Macross.
