About Rights Stuff
Rights Stuff also assists with new digital channel startups and channel carriage licensing globally. We are not aggregators, but rather a bespoke content licensing 'nitty gritty' team, for both the new platforms, and the producers/distributors who want to sell to them. We further help producers/distributors not only with their current and catalog licensing, but also original ‘made for web/mobile’ , cross platform and/or ‘transmedia’ programming, so as to maximize revenues across multiple windows and platforms.
